Born on April 2nd, 1857, Isola Wilde was born the daughter of Lady Jane Wilde and Sir William Wilde. She was the sister of William & Oscar Wilde. She was constantly referred to as "the pet of the house" and it was said that she lit up their lives like "a golden ray of sunshine dancing about the home".

On February 23rd, 1867, two months before her 10th birthday, Isola died of "a sudden effusion on the brain". The whole family was devastated and Oscar, who was 12 at the time, was haunted by his sister's death throughout his entire life.

This performance will be followed by a short set by Flip City (DA, Will McEvoy and Dave Gould).

A hard-steamin', obtuse jazz unit. Lots of confusion and disregard for instruction, but with clear intention.
