In 1895, the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of Oscar Wilde’s young lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, left a card at Wilde’s club accusing him of “posing as a somdomite [sic].” Wilde sued him for libel. Thus began a series of events which led to Wilde’s trials for “gross indecency.” Moisés Kaufman’s critically acclaimed off-Bway hit uses court transcripts, personal correspondence, interviews and other source materials to recreate the tragic fall of the once-reigning wit of London, Oscar Wilde.

Directed by Steve Noll
