This new immersive theatrical event thrusts viewers from the decadent drawing room to the reactionary courtroom, with a champagne flute still in your hand. Pairing Oscar Wilde’s beloved comedy (The Importance of Being Earnest) with the story of his persecution by the state, as told in Moisés Kaufman’s docu-play Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde, The Williams Project presents an evening-length, genre-defying performance exploring how our culture is obsessed with queer art but terrified of the queers who make it. Directed by Ryan Guzzo Purcell.
Preview 7/28, opens 7/29. Mask mandatory (no bar) performances on 7/30 (matinee), 8/2 (night), and 8/5 (matinee).
Location: Base (6520 5th Ave S, Seattle)
