About this show

A Modern, Gender-Bending Twist on an Oscar Wilde Classic! In this faithful adaptation of the original, just four actors play all of the characters in this Wilde classic, with men playing women and vice versa. Robert Chiltern (the upstanding man of morals) must suddenly confront a scandal from his past - which launched his career and made him a rich man. The personal and public fallout is enormous. The profligate, playboy Goring must save the day and discover his true self. We see the same scandals with politicians today - whether they're packaging junk mortgages or concocting 'financial instruments,' bailouts and golden parachutes! The play is heart-wrenching and tragic in the midst of the Wilde ripostes.
