A comedy about a drama therapy class in an imaginary prison, where the drama therapy happens twenty four hours a day.

Drama therapist Lady Lancing and her husband Omar have dedicated their lives to conducting anti-homophobic workshops utilising the life and works of Oscar Wilde.

The prisoners’ patience and imaginations are teased to refashion or to completely overhaul Wilde’s material and the threads that are interwoven through his works and the social conventions of the past century.

Pain unlike pleasure wears no mask
Oscar Wilde
