Thursday, 14 February 1895, the triumphant opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest and the zenith of Wilde’s career.  Less than 100 days later, he found himself a common prisoner sentenced to two years’ hard labour.  

So what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he persecuted or the author of his own downfall? Using original words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius suddenly reduced to a man of no importance.
