"In many ways the Huntington production is preferable to the highly acclaimed off-Broadway original. This production of Gross Indecency is unmissable!"- The Boston Globe
"Must see! Sharply intelligent and absolutely gripping."- The New York Times

The smashing off-Broadway success of last season chronicles the three courtroom battles that transformed Oscar Wilde's reputation forever. Once the most celebrated playwright in Britain, Wilde became notorious after three months of highly-publicized accusations and conflicting testimony leading eventually to his conviction for "gross indecency" for his scandalous relationship with a young aristocrat. This compelling and surprising drama skillfully juxtaposes court transcripts and contemporary accounts of the trials with excerpts from Wilde's own writings to create a mosaic which The New York Times cheered as "Must see!"
