Publisher's Summary

Devilishly attractive Lord Illingworth is notorious for his skill as a seducer. But he is still invited to all the "best" houses, while his female conquests must hide their shame in seclusion. In this devastating drawing-room comedy, Oscar Wilde uses his celebrated wit to expose English society's narrow view of everything from sexual mores to Americans.

thoroughly enjoyable performance

This is the first dramatisation I have listened to, I usually just listen to audio books. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be looking for more. The cast were great. I laughed and smiled all the east through.

Too screechy for me

Samantha Mathis is one of my favourite actresses, and I really wanted to enjoy this, but I didn't like the screechiness of the other actresses voices. As a result, I only got half way through. This was probably exacerbated by the fact that I was listening while commuting, so I had to have the volume up quite loud, I might try again in a quieter environment.
