Druid Theatre, Chapel Lane, Galway...13th Oct - 17th Oct

One of the most popular plays in the company's repertoire, The Persuit of Pleasure, a musical revue, is based on those aspects of Oscar Wilde's life which became part of the public imagination. This play won a Scotsman Fringe First Award at Edinburgh last year, where the 'Scotsman' Newspaper commented:
"This may very well be the best show on the life of Wilde since McLiammoir's The Importance of Being is witty, entertaining, celebratory, and comic.."
