Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde

by Moises Kaufman
directed by Gary Griffin

Sep 11, 1998 — Nov 07, 1998

“For his staging of this fascinating, fast-moving play, Gary Griffin has imported a storefront aesthetic to Court’s elegant little gem of an auditorium.” -Reader

Gross Indecency: Three Trials of Oscar Wilde is an intimate look at the trial of the century that destroyed the most celebrated playwright of his time, Oscar Wilde. Within three short months Wilde went from the toast of the town, with two smash hits (The Importance of Being Earnest and An Ideal Husband) playing to packed houses, to complete humiliation and utter scorn. Using various texts, including transcripts from the trial, newspaper accounts, personal letters, and biographies, playwright Moises Kaufman has created a provocative exploration of the issues of censorship, sexuality, and the role of the artist in society. An absolutely gripping courtroom drama full of Wilde’s trademark wordplay and witticism.
