The Trials Of Oscar Wilde
A thrilling dramatisation of the libel and criminal trials of Oscar Wilde by his grandson Merlin Holland and John O'Connor.
14 February 1895 was the triumphant opening night of The Importance Of Being Earnest and the zenith of Wilde's career. Less than 100 days later , he found himself a common prisoner sentenced to two years hard labour.
So what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? was he prospecuted or the author of his own downfall? Using the actual words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband was suddenly reduced to a man of no importance.
"A sell out success. John Gorick is a beguiling Wilde in asmart plasy that reveals the establishment at its worst." The Observer.
