Murder is always a mistake: One should never do anything one cannot talk about after dinner…
A gripping tale of love, honour, duty, fortune-telling and murder by Oscar Wilde.
Lord Arthur takes his marriage vows very seriously, but when he has his fortune told just weeks before the wedding, his destiny simply cannot be ignored.
Join Lord Arthur and his trusty valet, Middlewick, in a wicked black comedy that positively fizzes with fun.
Our two-man adaptation is still available to book.
As well as being a great and very marketable show for any theatre venue it can also be performed in your bar or restaurant area giving your audience a unique experience within your venue. The production can be performed on stage with a simple set but also works well when performed cabaret style, amongst the audience.
The play runs at 1 hour 30 minutes, excluding an interval (45 minutes each half ). If required, we can also do a one hour version with or without an interval.

**** 4 stars “Martin Harris’s script, written for just two characters, has wisely kept many of Wilde’s unforgettable lines. The result is a hilariously funny black comedy… A cracking production of a witty play, which brings pace and energy to the piece.” – What’s On Stage
**** 4 stars “The story is good, peppered with Wildeian wit, and vividly told by two charismatic actors who clearly have a great rapport with one another and their audience. A thoroughly enjoyable evening’s entertainment in every sense.” – The Public Reviews
**** 4 stars “Lord Arthur Savile invited us into his dining room for a delicious meal and delectable tales of his crimes, set into motion by a party favour and skillfully reenacted by Lord Arthur and his rather talented valet. This was a rich, delicious, glorious evening.” – Latest 7
