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.

But an indiscretion from his past resurfaces, threatening to bring it all crashing down.

Funny, Original, Clever, Delightful, Must see

See it if you like Oscar Wilde or want to try his plays. They're oldies but goodies. It's funny with a great plot.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy older shows. If you can't stand drawing room plays this probably won't change your mind.
