Perilous Mouths Theatre’s latest production sees the Hong Kong première of a new play, Constance, about the long-suffering wife of famed author, poet and playwright Oscar Wilde.


Created by Clare Stearns, who also directs, the play begins as the marriage breaks down and Constance slowly comes to terms with the true nature of her husband’s sexuality.  Motivated by her sincere love for and devotion to Oscar and her genuine belief in the sanctity of marriage, Constance, against the advice of her friends, stands by her man.


The narrative moves backwards and forwards in time as we explore the true nature of this remarkable woman.  We glimpse her complex personality, her traumatic childhood and her personal celebrity amongst London society of the 1890’s.


Punctuated by moving, funny songs from Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic opera Patience and littered with witty remarks from the works of Oscar Wilde, Constance rewrites history from the female point of view.
