Lord Arthur Savile's Crime


Constance Cox, from Oscar Wilde Short Story

Directed by: Mike Russell

16th - 19th April 1980

Lord Arthur Savile has his palm read, while attending a society party. The palm reader, Mr. Podgers (who is the personal cheiromantist to the party's host, Lady Windermere) is less than optimistic about what he reads in Savile's palm though... Wonderful Wildean wit woven into a farcical production.
