Wilde's first play confronts the hypocrisy of public 'morality' compared with genuine, private kindness. Its witty dialogue and its stylish setting provide opportunities for elegant presentation, together with its cast of memorable characters make this a genuinely moving story.

From the Inside Flap:

The irreverent satire that launched Wilde's succession of classical comedies. A Lord, his wife, her admirer and an infamous blackmailer converge in this delicious comic feast of scandal. A divinely funny comedy of good girls, bad husbands and the moral hypocrisy of British high society in the late nineteenth century.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring:

Gina Field as Lady Agatha Carlisle

Judy Geeson as Lady Plymdale

Joanna Going as Lady Windermere

Arthur Hanket as Mr. Cecil Graham

Lisa Harrow as Mrs. Erlynne

Dominic Keating as Mr. Hopper

Miriam Margolyes as The Duchess of Berwick

Roger Rees as Lord Windermere

Eric Stoltz as Lord Darlington

James Warwick as Lord Augustus Lorton

Tom Wheatley as Parker

Directed by Michael Hackett. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

About the Author:

Known for his barbed wit, Oscar Wilde was one of the most successful late-Victorian playwrights and a great celebrity. The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray are among his best known works. He is perhaps most famous for his trial, in which he eloquently defended homosexual love and was sentenced to two years of hard labor.
