Oscar & Walt celebrates the enduring legacy of two towering literary figures by dramatizing a real life encounter that took place in 1882 between the 62 year-old American poet Walt Whitman and the 28 year-old Anglo-Irish wit Oscar Wilde. Cultures clash, egos flare, words fly, and secrets emerge as two of the greatest writers of the 19th century – one nearing the end of his career, the other just beginning – come face-to-face in an unforgettable meeting of minds and hearts.

Winner of the 2019 “Best Full-Length Play” award from the Alliance of Los Angeles Playwrights/City of West Hollywood Pride Reading Festival, Oscar & Walt received it’s World Premiere later that year under the auspices of The English Theatre of Rome, Italy and makes its U.S. Premiere in 2021 at Kinetic Theatre.
