BWW Recap: THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER Series Premiere Brings Blood and Faith to FX
by Kara McCoy - Sep 15, 2015

At the same time, as a massive SONS OF ANARCHY fan, I wondered if THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER could possibly match up to one of the greatest dramas in recent television history (is that too strong?

PICT Theatre to Present LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN, 7/11-27
by BWW News Desk - Jun 25, 2013

Renowned Oscar Wilde expert Alan Stanford, PICT's interim Producing Artistic Director, will direct his adaptation of the great Irish playwright's comedy, Lady Windermere's Fan. Wilde's play, first produced in 1892 in London, satirizes the morality of Victorian society. Stanford has moved the setting forward in time to 1947; in post-World-War II London, Wilde's language and ridicule of high-society still resonate. Oscar Wilde was not so much a writer of polite English comedy, but rather a biting Irish satirist who lampooned the social absurdities and prejudices of the English upper classes, prejudices that lasted well into the Twentieth Century. This production, which runs July 11 through July 27, is PICT's third show of the season, and features a cast of 17 actors. (more...)
