Oscar & George On Film
7pm in the Crypt, starting in September 2019
 
A series of six films featuring the works of Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw with introductions by Professor Paul Loosley.
 
For this series Paul Loosley examines the broad cinema canon of a couple of fiercely intelligent playwrights; both Dublin-born, who, while both having much to say about London society. 
 
Oscar Wilde was a confirmed aesthete and a lover of all things beautiful. His work reflected both his self-declared wit and was peppered with Lords and Ladies and set in London townhouses. 
 
George Bernard Shaw on the other hand was a confirmed socialist, pacifist and Christian.  Frowning on the disparity between the idle rich and the hard-working poor, Shaw managed to lighten his burdensome political statements with clever metaphor and an equally superlative wit.
 
Before each screening Paul will discuss each film for approximately 30 minutes, giving insights into the playwright, the play and the production of the film. Altogether an interesting, instructive and enlightening evening that will also contribute to the welfare of one of London’s most historic and beautiful places of worship.
  
Tickets £5 each film or £25 for all 6 screenings can be obtained on the door or via the parish office, telephone: 020 7935 7315, email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
