Last Romantics is a full-length comic drama by Michael Lewis MacLennan. The play chronicles the staggering triumphs and losses of the now-forgotten brilliant artistic duo Charles Ricketts and Charles Shannon, to create a vivid portrait of a world left behind by the dawning of the modern age.

Last Romantics is a fictionalized portrait of the 50-year relationship between painter Charles Shannon and art collector Charles Ricketts, who influenced the early collection of the National Gallery. Last Romantics travels from the drawing rooms of the fin-de-siecle London, with Oscar Wilde and Aubrey Beardsley to Mackenzie King's Canada on the eve of the Great Depression.

Last Romantics premiered in 2003 at National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

Cast: 3 female, 5 male
