Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde in Austin


Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Edit

This celebrated and fascinating play tells the true story of famed and unashamed writer Oscar Wilde, who in 1895 was accused of posing as a sodomite by the father of his young companion, Lord Alfred Douglas. Wilde fought the scandalous charge in court, but the tables quickly turned, and he found himself defending his career, art, morality, and ultimately, his life. Playwright Moiss Kaufman, author of The Laramie Project, weaves together news articles, biographies, and interviews to recreate the harsh reality of Victorian past, but also create new light and relevancy on the downfall of the 19th Centurys most famous playwright and novelist, and his unquestioning view on the acts of love and beauty. Produced by the City Theatre Company. July 22 - 31. Thursday - Saturday 8 p.m.

Ages: Teen to Adults
