Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde

Get Tickets Free to $20
In three short months, Oscar Wilde, the most celebrated playwright of Victorian England, was toppled from the apex of British society into humiliation and ruin. Drawing from trial documents, newspapers and writings of the key players, playwright Moises Kaufman ignites an incendiary mix of sex and censorship. The play centers around the accusations of "gross indecency" given to anyone exhibiting homosexual activity, which was illegal in the United Kingdom in the 19th Century.
