Details

Written in 1895 the story revolves around blackmail and political corruption, and touches on the themes of public and private honour.

Sir Robert Chiltern is a respected government official and a loving husband but his friend, Lord Arthur Goring , is a notorious womanizer who lives a life of casual lounging, meaningless flirtations and multiple illicit affairs.

When old acquaintance Laura Cheveley arrives in London to stir up trouble, the lives of the two men become increasingly complicated and intertwined, and their true natures are revealed.

Deceit and lies weave themselves throughout as Wilde pulls the curtain on the hypocrisy of moralistic Victorian society. With wit and gaiety he paints a scathing critique of gossips, income gaps, sexist attitudes, and the perils of protecting one’s morals.

"Sooner or later," Wilde notes, "we shall all have to pay for what we do." But he adds that, "No one should be entirely judged by their past."
