This version of the play takes it forward to modern times or nearly, the sixties it seems, and I don't think it is successful in spite of good actors. It might have seemed tempting to do this as the theme of the play - a politician's use of inside information to get rich - is as relevant today as it was then. But at the same time it is a play about forgiveness, and that is a real problem, even more so today. Would a contemporary politician be forgiven - and should he be - for such a crime? I think not. It is only the distance in time and - well, Oscar Wilde known as the writer of drawing-room comedies - that makes the plot acceptable. So present day no go.
