  • Overview
    Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde is a 1997 play written by Moisés Kaufman. It deals with Oscar Wilde's three trials on the matter of his relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas, which led to charges of "committing acts of gross indecency with other male persons". (The first trial was a civil suit brought against Douglas's father by Wilde himself; the second and third were on the criminal charges against Wilde, with the second reaching no verdict and the third resulting in a conviction and sentence to hard labour.) The play uses real quotes and transcripts of the three trials.

    "I like to say that Oscar Wilde was the first performance artist. He was a man who chose to live his life with passion. And in trying to define his own world in his own terms, he came up against a society that found him truly subversive." --Moises Kaufman
