WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Bunbury Is Dead is an Oscar Wilde-based fringe show, taking epigrams and wit from all of Wilde's major works to form all-new dialogue. Following the escapades of Bunbury, a dissolute young rake who feigns illness in order to avoid his fearsome aunt and the hordes of creditors at his door, this fast-paced satirical postmodern tribute act sets out to prove that "Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit." Featuring a Machiavellian butler, a formidable Aunt, a domineering New Woman, a soppy romantic artist, murder, forgery, marriage, man flu and of course the dashing rogue Bunbury himself, the show is an hour of twisted logic, high farce and the inimitable wit of Oscar Wilde.
