Mappa Mundi | Theatr Mwldan Co-Production

By Merlin Holland and John O’ Connor

The triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest in 1895 was the zenith of Oscar Wilde's career. Less than 100 days later he found himself jailed and bankrupt, sentenced by the Crown to two years hard labour for homosexuality. 

But what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he harshly treated or the author of his own downfall? 

Using the actual words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband was tragically reduced to a man of no importance.

Suitable for  14+    

Supported by the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh Government and the National Lottery.

3D 3D Screening


When you watch a film in 3D, you feel as though you’ve stepped inside it. Superb image quality – crisp, bright and ultra-realistic and stunning surround sound bring the story to life around you. You’re not just experiencing the entertainment; you’re right inside the entertainment.

R Relaxed Screening/Performance


Open to everyone, but particularly appropriate for anyone who may find the usual theatre/cinema environment challenging, due to an Autism Spectrum Condition, a learning disability, or a fear of the dark, loud noises or confined spaces.

Relaxed Performances/Screenings provide a relaxed environment, where elements are adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and leaving and re-entering the auditorium during the performance/screening.

Designated 'chill-out' areas are provided outside the auditorium with activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.
