THE COBRA

by Justin Fleming

During an apocalyptic bombing raid in London during World War II, Alfred Douglas, now a very old man, relives his relationship with Oscar Wilde, through the prism of time and conscience - with some most unexpected revelations.

'In 1983, in the Sydney Opera House, Sir Robert Helpmann starred for the Sydney Theatre Company in the world premiere of Fleming's play The Cobra. Helpmann's portrayal of the elderly Lord Alfred Douglas, reflecting bitterly on his notorious youthful relationship with Oscar Wilde, was described as unforgettable.' Wikipedia
