It was just one week before what was going to be billed ‘the trial of the century’.
In Extremis attempts to reveal and understand the strange turmoil of that night, as one of the most celebrated men of his age enlists the help of a complete stranger for advice about a potentially life-changing decision. Faced with the choice of fight or flight was Oscar’s fateful decision based on the advice he received that night? First presented at The National Theatre to mark the centenary of Oscar Wilde’s death.
