“Bernard and Bosie: A Most Unlikely Friendship” by Anthony Wynn
Review Lexington Herald Leader
“Compelling... A funny, touching, engaging piece of theatre” The play explores the complex relationship between literary giant George Bernard Shaw and the poet Lord Alfred 'Bosie' Douglas (the intimate friend of Oscar Wilde) through their own letters to one another in the 1930s and 1940s. In an age of instant communication through e-mail and cellular telephones, the two act play "Bernard and Bosie: A Most Unlikely Friendship" is a reminder of the intimate and old- fashioned art of letter writing. It's a story about character and the ways in which personal fate is tied to the earliest years of one's life, and how the past can have a direct impact on the present.
