Darcy Alexander Corstorphine

‘I summed up all systems in a phrase, and all existence in an epigram’

Darcy is a writer from London. Prior to his election to the Oscar Wilde Society Committee, he thrice emerged as the winner of the Society’s Wilde Wit Competition. His winning epigrams were described by Stephen Fry as ‘excellent’, by Gyles Brandreth as ‘brilliant’, and by The Oldie as ‘masterly’. They were described by his mother as ‘a tad showy-offy’.

On the Committee, Darcy works formally as Assistant to Robert Whelan and florally as Society Buttonhole Coordinator. On quiet evenings, he works on the final flourishes of his Wilde-themed stage play—a play that he may someday even begin to write.

He was born on the 16th of October (Oscar’s birthday).
