Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wildeby Moises Kaufman
In 1891 Oscar Wilde began an ill-fated friendship with Lord Alfred Douglas, whose father accused Wilde of “posing sodomite.”
Wilde sued the father for libel, but the case collapsed and Wilde himself was arrested and tried for homosexual offenses under the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1895.Gross Indecency uses trial transcripts, personal correspondence, interviews and other source materials to tell the story of the downfall of the great man of letters whose artistic genius has long been overshadowed by the scandal surrounding his imprisonment.
