Oscar Wilde Children’s Stories is a re-issue of the best-selling CD based on the RTÉ Radio 1 documentary first released in 2000.
The charm of Oscar Wilde’s stories appeals not only to children but also to that place of wonder we all hold in our hearts. In his book Son of Oscar Wilde, Vivian Holland recounts how his father used to tell fairytales to him and his brother, Cyril. Now these enchanting stories are delightfully interpreted on this RTÉ recording by four of Ireland’s best known and internationally acclaimed actors, David Kelly, Alan Stanford, Bill Golding and Barry McGovern.
The stories were first broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 in November 2000 as part of the Oscar Wilde Season, which commemorated the centenary of Widle’s death.
