Monsieur Bunbury: A Tale of Two Men in Earnest

Theatre / Comedy
Scaled square800
Experience the wit of Oscar Wilde's wordplay in a menagerie of French and English --- extending his whimsical farce of quips and puns across two languages simultaneously.

The comedy of Wilde's social commentary on the Victorian aristocracy and its trivialities will unfold in a bilingual spectacle, adding even more layers to each double entendre.

"Wow, that was amazing!" --- Several people with no personal connection to cast members or the French language.

Produced by Jden Redden for Fascinating Lies whose previous credits include BankSA Fringe Award Winning 'The Expert at the Card Table ' ★★★★ "Defied Belief" The Advertiser.

Fascinating Lies
