Oscar Wilde's titular story in his 1891 collection of serio-comic mysteries makes its way onto the stage in this riveting adaptation. Wilde's vivid story of Lord Arthur commences just prior to his marriage to Sybil Morton, a fine young bride-to-be. When Arthur receives a prophecy that he is bound to commit murder in his lifetime, he schemes to commit the heinous act before settling down to a life with Sybil, hoping to spare the young girl from his brutality. This satirical piece follows Arthur through the pratfalls and failed attempts to morbidly hilarious effect. Wilde's luminescent wit shines through this not-to-be-missed theatrical event, one of the finest stage adaptations yet seen of Wile's original story.
