Great Poetry Read by Great Actors
A rare opportunity to see author Merlin Holland – Oscar Wilde’s only grandson – speak about his grandfather and read Josephine Hart’s introduction to Wilde’s universally acclaimed and moving masterpiece The Ballad of Reading Gaol.
Celebrated actor Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love, A Room with a View) will read the ballad.
Following the success of the WB Yeats and WH Auden Poetry Hours, The Josephine Hart Poetry Foundation is delighted to return to the Abbey Stage to celebrate the genius of Wilde.
