Publisher's Summary

A lord, his wife, her admirer and an infamous blackmailer converge in the irreverent satire that launched Wilde's succession of classic social comedies. This delicious comic feast serves up a scandal about good girls, bad husbands and hilarious hypocrisy - utterly contemporary and divinely funny.
(P)2000 L.A. Theatre Works

Oscar Wilde ftw

I always forget how much I love Oscar Wilde until I experience him again. This particular play had me cracking up like an idiot on an airplane, so choose your listening location wisely 😉

It's a full cast production and a full Wilde parody, so be prepared for the ridiculous.

I hadn't heard much about this play, but as I listened, I discovered that most of his famous quotes are pulled from this work.

Delightful

Any additional comments?

A delightful performance of the classic play, I found it entertaining but I didn't ~love~ it as much as some of Wilde's other works I've read (a.k.a. listened to) this year.
