ABOUT THE PLAY:
The true story of famed – and unashamed - author Oscar Wilde, who in 1895 was accused of posing as a “sodomite” by the father of his young companion, Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas. Wilde fought the scandalous and questionable charge, but the tables quickly turned, and he found himself defending his career, art, morality, and ultimately, his life. Playwright Moises Kaufman, author of The Laramie Project, weaves together news articles, biographies, and interviews to recreate the harsh reality of Victorian past, but also create new light and relevancy on the downfall of the 19th Century’s most famous playwright and novelist, and his unquestioning view on the acts of love and beauty.
