Synopsis

This Victorian comedy of manners sparkles with Wilde's trademark repartee, epigrams, and witty dialogue. Arch-moralist Lady Windermere, shattered by the suspicion of her husband's infidelity, contemplates running off with a roue until her rival illustrates the difference between morality and its appearance. A comic masterpiece, studded with humorous quips and clever paradoxes.
