Simon in De Profundis at Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Simon will be performing Oscar Wilde’s searing meditation on his life, in the form of a devastating letter of reproach to his lover Lord Alfred Douglas - ‘Bosie’. 

Imprisoned in Reading Gaol and forbidden from writing works of fiction, Wilde was permitted to write – though not to send – the bitter and terrible diatribe that is also a love letter which was eventually published as De Profundis. 

Adapted by Tony Award winner, Frank McGuinness, and directed by Mark Rosenblatt. 

12.30pm on 02 - 26 August 2018
