Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime

Adapted by Constance Cox,
from a short story by Oscar Wilde

25th January - 1st February 2003
Director: Tom Thistleton

Lord Arthur Savile who, while attending a society party, has his palm read. The palm reader, Mr. Podgers (who is the personal cheiromantist to the party's host, Lady Windermere) is less than optimistic about what he reads in Savile's palm though.

Visibly shaken, Mr. Podgers tells a very cryptic fortune, saying only that Arthur will go on a voyage and will lose a relative. There is obviously more that Podger is holding back, but he won't elaborate, leaving Arthur to wonder, given his forthcoming marrage...
