Simon Callow is to perform in a new stage adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s De Profundis in the West End.

The adaptation by Frank McGuinness will show for a limited run of six performances at the Vaudeville Theatre from January 3 to 6.

Described by McGuinness as Wilde’s “last great play”, De Profundis reflects on the writer’s life and his lover Lord Alfred ‘Bosie’ Douglas.

Directed by Mark Rosenblatt, the show is part of Dominic Dromgoole and Nica Burns’ new theatre company Classic Spring’s year-long celebration of the life and work of Oscar Wilde.
