By Oscar Wilde. Adapted and directed by Kip Williams. Sydney Theatre Company. Roslyn Packer Theatre. Nov 25 – Dec 19, 2020
Just as Sydney theatre capacities have been lifted, arrives this perfectly timed brilliant production, which is up there with anything audiences have enjoyed streaming from the finest companies in the world.
It began simply enough, with a bare stage and a single screen which Eryn Jean Norvill (the only actor in the production) was projected up onto, from a live broadcast.
The initial straightforward monologue was pleasant enough, as we focused on the fine porcelain features of her face and those deep expressive eyes.
