Format: Paperback
My very favourite of Oscar Wilde's plays. Choc-a-bloc with wit, and humorous repartee, it also is an intriguing story, and fascinating to see how it plays out. No wonder it is still popular 112 years after is first produced with recent productions on video/DVD doing very well.

Member of Parliament Lord Robert Chiltern is blackmailed by the wicked Mrs. Cheverly, with a secret from his youth, leading to a crisis in his life, and in his marriage to the virtuous Lady Chiltern. It is up to his friend, the delightfully foppish Lord Goring to help extricate him. All is well that ends well, but not after much interplay and intrigue.

Every word in this play is well measured out for one of the great masterpieces of English Drama.

Format: Paperback
A Wilde classic, with fantastic wit, beautifully written and naturally containing a scandal that doesn't seem as shocking to a modern audience but would have been groundbreaking in it's day.
Unfortunately a great deal of the jokes are lost on our contemporary audience due to political changes etc. So before reading I would suggest doing some research on the victorian era.
But other than that a prodigious read that will be enjoyable for most!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cheap and good value but not a good acting edition as there is no space either in the margins or between the lines to mark directions.
