This play is one of the most delightful and memorable social comedies ever written and showcases why Oscar Wilde is considered one of the greatest wits of Western literature. The story revolves around an inventive case of contrived mistaken identity. The plot that satirizes Victorian manners and customs is light, witty, absolutely unforgettable and remarkably appropriate for society today.
