The true story of the famous author Oscar Wilde, who in 1895 was accused of posing as a “sodomite” by the father of his young companion, Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas. Wilde fought the scandalous charge, but the tables quickly turned, and he found himself defending his career, art, morality, and ultimately, his life. Playwright Moisés Kaufman, author of The Laramie Project, weaves together news articles, biographies, and interviews to recreate the harsh reality of Victorian England, and explore how Wilde’s commitment to the ideals of art, love, and beauty speak to our world today.
