About the show

The AlphaNYC Theater Company presents this treasured classic from 1895 that picks apart both the soaring landscape of society and the most sheltered of relationships: marriage. More…

The legendary wit of Oscar Wilde creates a funny yet emotionally resonant comedy that weaves together blackmail, political corruption and public and private honor in late 19th-century England. It's the story of a man who seems to have the perfect life: a beautiful wife, a bright political future, a promising family, and engaging friends. But an indiscretion from his past resurfaces, threatening to bring it all crashing down.
