Gross Indecency

The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde

By Moisés Kaufman

This gripping courtroom drama is an intimate look at the downfall of the most celebrated writer of his time. In three short months, Oscar Wilde went from being the toast of London to complete humiliation and ruin. Original texts &endash; trial transcripts, newspaper accounts, letters and Wilde's own words &endash; weave together to explore the value of art, the corrosiveness of bigotry and the creative/destructive nature of pride.
