De Profundis is a musical monologue, a dramatisation of the letter Oscar Wilde wrote to his long-term lover Lord Alfred Douglas (Bosie ) from his prison cell in Reading Jail. De Profundis, which roughly translates as ‘the depths of the soul’, is a deeply confessional letter, which has a very clear emotional, philosophical and rational arc.

The show won the Leicester Square Theatre 'New Musical Theatre Project' in 2014, beating over a hundred other entries and went on to recieve unanimous critical acclaim. The show has been performed as far afield as Shanghai and the whole show has recently been translated for a new Spanish production.
