One of Oscar Wilde’s most progressive comedies, set in 1893 on the country estate of the great Lady Hunstanton. On a sunny summertime evening, young Gerald Arbuthnot attends a dinner party and pines for Hester Worsley, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy American Puritan.

When Gerald is appointed secretary to the much-admired Lord Illingworth, he celebrates the chance to improve his station but is surprised to find that his own Mother has a mysterious aversion to his new position.

This sharp social satire examines the hypocrisy of a society that condemns certain people for their mistakes while applauding others for the same sins. Wilde’s writing pokes fun at the ridiculousness of Victorian society, where virtue is far too often based on appearances.
