Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“L.A. Theatre Works’ new production brings the drama from Oscar Wilde’s famous novel onto the stage…Based on the theatrical adaptation by Paul Edwards, this interpretation unleashes all the dramatic tension of the story without ignoring the necessary plot points. Steve Juergens gives a convincing performance as the haughty Gray. He speaks with clear emotion and masterfully conveys all the cruelty and conceit of the infamous protagonist. The supporting cast bolsters the production with a range of narrative and character roles. This audiobook transports the reader into the front row of the theater.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Oscar Wilde

Author Bio: Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by the radical aesthetics of Walter Pater. Flamboyant wit and man-about-town, Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. After publishing two volumes of short stories between 1887 and 1891, his social-comedy plays such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest established his critical and commercial success. In 1895 Wilde was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for homosexual conduct and died in Paris in obscurity a few years after his release.
