THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING OSCAR
By Micheál MacLiammóir (abridged for lunchtime)

Performed by Michael Judd
Directed by Sinead Colreavy
With original music from New York composer Nico Kean

Michael Judd returns with his ever-popular performance of The Importance of Being Oscar in an edited show for lunchtime. This is a compelling theatrical tapestry revealing the wit, triumph and tragedy of Oscar Wilde in an explosion of richness, boldness, passion and beauty. Includes excerpts from The Importance of Being Earnest, An Ideal Husband and a particularly moving Ballad of Reading Gaol.
The irresistible gaiety of Oscar survives to the curtain line, assuring the audience of a vivid and memorable afternoon of theatre.

'an energised, captivating performance... For those wild about Wilde or still to be convinced of his genius, this is the perfect sampling platter of his works' Entertainment.ie

‘Michael Judd slips easily from MacLiammóir’s anecdotal narrative into Wildean characters presenting well-known snippets from the best known and loved writings’
Village Voice, NYC.

In 1960 Micheál MacLiammóir launched his celebrated one-man show The Importance of Being Oscar at the Dublin Theatre Festival, under the direction of Hilton Edwards. Irish critics of the time acclaimed the text as “an outstandingly skilful and memorable tribute from one Irish artist to another” (Irish Press). Over the next fifteen years they took the show all over the world, where it was received with great enthusiasm by both audience and press.
