The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde

The Guthrie Theatre presents Irish playwright Thomas Kilroy’s The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde, an exploration into the life of the wife of renowned writer Oscar Wilde, who had a highly controversial relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas during the marriage. Starring Sarah Agnew (of the acclaimed one-woman show The Syringa Tree) as the titular character, with Matthew Greer as Oscar Wilde, the play is a mix of fact, fiction, and speculation that brings to life the private world they shared. Puppets and live musicians will also be seen in the play’s transcendental world.

The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde runs through July 11 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage. Marcela Lorca directs. Tickets are between $29 and $59, and can be purchased by calling (612) 377-2224 or by visiting
