"For us there is only one season, the season of sorrow. The very sun and moon seem taken from us ... It is always twilight in one's cell, as it is always twilight in one's heart. And in the sphere of thought, no less than in the sphere of time, motion is no more." In De Profundis, Oscar Wilde documented the facts of his two year's of incarceration and hard labor in Reading Gaol for the crime of homosexuality, candidly noting the physical, psychological, and spiritual effects of his isolation and punishment. Nicole Villamil stars in Brian Mertes and Jim Findlay's dramatic new stage adaptation, the spring season opener for PlayMakers' second-stage series. —Byron Woods
