Wilde and Darling Productions is a new, Adelaide-based production company that is dedicated to telling engaging, personal and contemporary stories, with an emphasis on lifting young voices.
Wilde and Darling was founded by Sarah Westgarth, and runs under her direction.
Theatre will be Wilde and Darling’s primary domain, with the plan to stage plays that are Australian, original, or tackled with a modern, fresh perspective. Rather than deciding on shows and then finding a cast to suit, we put the performers first and then select or create shows that will showcase them appropriately.
Our first production is a brand new play. ‘Delayed’ is set in a small-town bus station where a group of strangers find themselves stranded days before Christmas. Written specifically for the actors involved, ‘Delayed’ is an examination of what it means to be a part of a family, and finding what you think you’ve lost.
Looking ahead, ‘Wilde and Darling’ will be offering workshops and classes for young people in acting, singing and dancing. The first of these will be held in the holidays of January 2020, where kids aged 7-12 can register for a week long musical theatre program. More details to come.
