Devilishly attractive Lord Illingworth is notorious for his skill as a seducer. But he is still invited to all the best houses, while his female conquests must hide their shame in seclusion. In this devastating drawing room comedy, Wilde uses his celebrated wit to expose English society’s narrow view of everything from sexual mores to Americans. The broadcast includes an interview with Merlin Holland, Oscar Wilde’s grandson.
