Synopsis: A modernist take on a classic piece! Oscar Wilde’s play paints a portrait of the opulent rich and, characteristically of Wilde, their ironic existential foils. Lord Illingworth is an improper unmarried English gentleman whose ambitions and fortune have found him in the company of the upper crust of the British country gentry. His young assistant is thrilled that the two will soon be travelling the world!! But everything is not as it seems….
