Description

A selection of Oscar Wilde’s best and most important plays – sharp, relevant and brilliant to this day.

Oscar Wilde was a genius of play-writing, and his deftness, wit and sharp eye for social satire keep audiences in thrall to this day. Alongside Earnest, discover a biblical tragedy retold, Lady Windemere and her infamous fan and Wilde’s take on an ideal husband, in this selection of Wilde’s most important plays.

‘[The Importance of Being Earnest] has a strong claim to being the most perfect comedy in the English language’ Daily Telegraph
