An outstanding group of actors performs this full-cast production of Oscar Wilde's droll look at society’s double standard. They deliver Wilde’s bon mots with the polished style of the period. "I can resist everything but temptation," is delivered by the roué Lord Darlington with great good humor. Maintaining the elevated energy necessary for good theater, the actors keep the interactions between the characters sparkling. Others of Wilde’s most famous one-liners are handled with aplomb, and lovely music separates the scenes, making this an especially good fit for audio.
