A perennial delight
on 23 August 2012
This Play never palls. Oscar Wilde's witty and amusing dialogue remains a perennial delight and it is a play which can be listened to over and over again with enjoyment.
This particular recording features a strong cast, with Jeremy Clyde, Richard Pasco and Prunella Scales taking the main parts.
It is also the first broadcast of the original four-act version of the play. The extra dialogue is not often met with in most modern productions.
It is ideal for listening to while doing a long, boring job, (such as the ironing!). And I am sure it will give equal pleasure, whether the listener is already familiar with the play, or whether it comes as an entirely new experience.
It remains a tragedy that the author of such a delicious light comedy should have met with such a disastrous fall from grace.
