Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde by Moisés Kaufman

At the height of his career, the Crown prosecuted Oscar Wilde for "gross indecency with male persons." Despite two hit shows on the West End, the courtroom denounced Wilde's art as immoral - forcing him to defend his works and life with characteristic wit and insight. Gross Indecency explores this true story with a text crafted from a wealth of eyewitness accounts.
