Following the now familiar format, guests include a selection of some of the ‘celebrities’ of the day. Packed with gossip, song and humour – and a few surprises – this light-hearted performance invites the audience to experience the wittiest Victorian ‘chit-chat’ show, with plenty of audience interaction! Mark our words, tongues will wag!!
Join Oscar Wilde at Kiplin Hall as he interviews leading celebrities of the Victorian era, recounts a story or two, and invites his audience to get “Caught in the Act”!
Don’t Go Into the Cellar! are the British Empire’s top-notch Victorian theatre company bringing us Victorian theatre with bite!
“This is much more than a show; it is really a theatre experience, being both immersive and interactive.”
“Anything that has me laughing at the wit and raucousness one minute, and then only a few minutes later has me gripping tightly onto my fiance’s hand to will myself not to cry, is going to be a winner with me. There are few shows that are both funny and truly touching in places, and this succeeded very capably.”
Tea with Oscar Wilde at 7.00pm on Saturday 4 June. Tickets for this chat show with a difference are £10.50.
