Wilde's 1893 play begins as "Lords and ladies gather for afternoon tea and brilliant banter at an idyllic English country estate," according to press notes. "For young Gerald Arbuthnot and his mother, the assembled not-so-polite company holds the keys to happiness in love and life. In this comedy of serial seducers, moralizing monogamists, secret pasts and simmering heartbreak, how will the Arbuthnots choose between social advancement and painful truths spoken from the heart?"
