Fearless Imp Entertainment Presents THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING OSCAR
Fresh off the success of their first show this year, "Macbeth: His Story Her Tragedy," Fearless Imp Entertainment returns to the stage this June at the annual Hollywood Fringe Festival. Inspired by an award-winning short play, "The Importance Of Being Oscar" follows the legendary playwright and poet, Oscar Wilde, through the last years of his life.
Finally released from prison, Oscar, portrayed by Richard Abraham, tries to reclaim his life. He has three visitors during his final days, his friend, portrayed by Richard Lucas, his estranged wife, portrayed by Cyanne McClairian, and finally one of his fictional creations, portrayed by Patrick Censoplano. They discuss love, loss, mistakes and morality (or lack thereof).
Sometimes whimsical and sometimes heartbreaking, "The Importance Of Being Oscar" is a beautiful tribute to an icon of the world of theatre, liberally laced with his very own witticisms and quotes. Expertly written by Brandie June and directed by Fearless Imp Entertainment producer Matthew Martin, "The Importance of Being Oscar" makes its world premiere at this year's Hollywood Fringe Festival.
"Author and creation have a conversation, immortal character and dying human man, about life and art and desire. Frankly, the whole thing proved so well-written I wanted a longer play." -Review from The World Through Night-Tinted Glasses of the original short play, A Picture of Oscar Wilde.
