6 Male 1 Female

"If equal affection cannot be
Let the more loving one be me"

Auden's famous couplet expresses the dilemma at the heart of David Hare's fascinating exploration of Oscar Wilde's relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas

The author speculates on two incidents in Wilde's life of which we know little, in order to present a play whose true subject is not Wilde, but love

And not Bosie, but betrayal

"A moving evocation of the human spirit" ~ N.Y. Daily News

"Shifts the heroic focus, emphasizing Wilde less as a martyr of sexual persuasion than as a martyr of love ... That the object of Wilde's love ... is so clearly unworthy of it only makes the sacrifice more noble" ~ N.Y. Times

This is the Faber Edition
