Event Description
In which I will be exploring how his four hit plays (A Woman of No Importance, Lady Windermere's Fan, An Ideal Husband, The Importance of Being Earnest) but also his life-story have been performed/adapted over the years. I would like to focus particularly on how wit and humour contributed to his status as a modern LGBTQA+ icon.


I have always been incredibly passionate about history and literature and hold two BAs: one in Anglo-American Literature and History, and another in English-Italian Linguistics. In 2019, I obtained my MA in English Drama and Literature, specializing in the Restoration era and 1960s England. After growing up in the United States and then living for sixteen years in the South of France, I came to England in 2016. I currently reside in Brighton with my husband, daughter, and French cat. I teach foreign languages (French, English, and Italian) in Brighton & Hove, and Rottingdean, as well as mentoring sixth form students. I am passionate about: art, literature, history, yoga, gastronomy
