CGiii Comment

Finch is a marvel.

This has a beating heart and the agony is delivered without compromise.

The pomposity of the age deliciously and deliberately captured.

A classic piece of work.

The(ir) Blurb...

At the height of his fame (his plays being much celebrated in London in the 1890's), Oscar Wilde angers the Marquis of Queensberry by having what is whispered and gossiped as a romantic relationship with Queensberry's son, twenty years Wilde's junior. When Queensberry slanders Wilde, the arrogant artist decides to take the matter to court, and brings about his own downfall.
