Classic Comedy

This classic Oscar Wilde comedy tells of social satires with gaiety and wit. Deception and blackmail weave themselves throughout as Wilde pulls the curtain on the hypocrisy of moralistic Victorian society. Over the course of 24 hours, Lady Chiltern goes to great lengths to save her husband’s political career in the face of an impending scandal. A funny and thoughtful comedy about the obstacles she’s willing to hurdle to save a loved one’s reputation – both at large and in her own mind. Wilde paints a scathing critique of gossips, income gaps, sexist attitudes, and the perils of protecting one’s morals.
