"Oscar Wilde's most famous and - posthumously - successful play." (The Cambridge Companion to Oscar Wilde)
Mom, engineer, and cook
You know the material is funny and biting enough to make you cry. But darn-it, the stage directions distract without adding value. There are maybe *two* places where we need to be told someone is entering or leaving. The rest is really obvious from what the characters say OR could be made obvious through a touch of audio staging (door or walking sounds, for example). The intrusion of the superfluous narrator just ruined this one for me.
Wilde's one-liners come to life in a crisp, fast-paced recording. The cast renders the characters in a truly delightful manner. A most entertaining piece of audio.
