The ECC presents Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, directed by Deborah Griffith
No man is rich enough to buy back his past.
Oscar Wilde’s dramatic comedy deals with political intrigue, blackmail and marriage – a charming combination! It raises questions about public and private honour and whether a noble future and great contribution to society should be sacrificed for past indiscretions. By setting the play in the 1950s, director Deborah Griffith demonstrates that these issues are timeless and brings an interesting new twist to Wilde’s classic play, which stands with The Importance of Being Earnest as one of his most performed masterpieces.
18 to 22 March 2014
Palais des Beaux Arts, Rue Ravenstein, 1000 Bruxelles

King Lear is probably the greatest of Shakespeare’s plays. Some consider it as “the grandest effort of his imagination”. Human beings were never so cruel and ‘unnatural’ as in this play; yet human beings were never shown with so much goodness, loyalty and self-sacrifice as in this play. Kings, beggars, and fools; fathers, sons and daughters; love, lust, greed, corruption, violence and war: all of these themes have a place in King Lear.
The play will be performed from 24 to 28 June 2014 at BRONKS Theatre(main stage) in Rue Marché Aux Porcs, just off Sainte-Catherine.
