The triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest in 1895 was the zenith of Oscar Wilde's career. Less than 100 days later he found himself jailed and bankrupt, sentenced by the Crown to two years hard labour for homosexuality.
But what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he harshly treated or the author of his own downfall?
Using the actual words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband was tragically reduced to a man of no importance.
