International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival presents the world premier of ‘Wretched Little Brat‘ from November 16th-21st.
The untold story of persecuted love, moralistic law and endless litigation between Lord Alfred Douglas (Bosie) and Robbie Ross, Oscar Wilde’s lovers. George Bernard Shaw exclaimed when he met Bosie that he was a ‘Wretched Little Brat’. Meet an array of political and literary characters in an unresolved battle of the moral versus the lawful that raged until 1945.
The new full length play charts the lives of Robbie Ross who dedicated his life to maintain Wilde’s legacy after his death in 1900, and Lord Alfred Douglas who did the opposite. The litigation that ruined Wilde went on to try to destroy Ross as Douglas hounded him through the courts for promoting homosexuality. The play charts the Wilde years and beyond to Bosie’s death in 1945.
Based on their own testimony, “Wretched Little Brat” reveals the lives underscoring one of the most “scandalous” episodes in history and how it continues to impact in modern times.
