THE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE

Less than 100 days after the triumphant opening of The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde found himself a common prisoner sentenced to two years hard labour. So what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he persecuted or the author of his own downfall?

Relive the words spoken in court, in the company of a flawed genius,  as this less than Ideal Husband is suddenly reduced to A Man of No Importance.

'A BEGUILING WILDE IN A SMART PLAY THAT REVEALS THE ESTABLISHMENT AT ITS WORST' Guardian 
 
'UTTERLY COMPELLING AND HEART-RENDING. BRILLIANT ENSEMBLE ACTING. GO!!!' Stephen Fry
