Stories Gone Wilde
Stories Gone Wilde
Adapted by James Zager. Based on Oscar Wilde's short stories.

Cast: 5m., 5w. (plus 8 ensemble members, either gender.) A garden comes to life to tell a number of fantastic stories that took place there including: The Selfish Giant, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Birthday of the Infanta, The Remarkable Rocket and The Happy Prince. The play is cyclical, representing a day, a year, and a life, starting with dawn and moving through the day and the seasons. This classic storytelling illuminates childhood, adolescence, coming of age, adulthood, sacrifice and loss, and a new beginning. Extraordinary characterizations and the ensemble nature of the piece make this a fantastic project for young actors who are challenged to create the world of the garden as well as perform in it. Minimal costume requirements. Single set. Minimal set and prop requirements. Other technical needs are virtually nonexistent. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
