GROSS INDECENCY:THE THREE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE
by Moisés Kauffman
January 10 - March 22, 2014 at the Hilberry Theatre
In 1895, playwright and wit Oscar Wilde was put on trial for his relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas, which led to charges of "committing acts of gross indecency with other male persons." Drawing from a variety of authentic sources, Kauffman brings alive the realities and scandals of the past. This dramatically clever piece illustrates the ever-continuing conflict between art and morality in a way that Wilde himself would have approved.
