Oscar Wilde's grandson Merlin Holland and John O'Connor have helmed a stunning dramatisation of the playwright's infamous libel and criminal trial.

4 February 1895 was the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest and the zenith of Wilde's career. Less than 100 days later, he found himself a common prisoner sentenced to two years hard labour.
So what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he persecuted or the author of his own downfall?  Using the actual words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband was suddenly reduced to a man of no importance.
‘A sell out success. John Gorick is a beguiling Wilde in a smart play that reveals the establishment at its worst.’
