Picture an imaginary prison where the drama therapy is twenty fours a day. Drama therapist, Lady Lancing has dedicated her life to conducting anti-homophobic workshops utilizing the life and works of Oscar Wilde.
The prisoner’s patience and imaginations are teased to refashion or to completely overhaul Wilde’s material and the threads that are interwoven through his works and the social conventions of the past century.
