'An emotionally rich drama illuminated by Hare’s customary insight and humanity' –The Globe and Mail
In the spring of 1895, Oscar Wilde was larger than life. His Masterpiece
The Importance of Being Ernest was a hit in the West End; he was the toast of London. Yet by summer he was serving two years in prison for gross indecency.
The scene is the Cadogan Hotel in 1895, where Wilde gathers his thoughts after losing a libel suit against the Marquess of Queensbury, the father of his lover Alfred Douglas, aka Boisie. The Marquess, enraged by the couple’s recklessly public and, in Victorian society’s view, amoral affair, openly insulted the writer and thus a lawsuit ensued. Now the defeated writer struggles with a burden of conscience — flee to France to escape persecution or stay and stand his ground, even when Boisie’s love is fickle and inconstant.
