What’s the point in having a wicked past if you’re going to keep it secret?

Oscar Wilde’s audacious drama of social scandal centres around the revelation of Mrs Arbuthnot’s long-concealed secret. A house party is in full swing at Lady Hunstanton’s country home, when it is announced that Gerald Arbuthnot has been appointed secretary to the sophisticated, witty Lord Illingworth. Gerald’s mother stands in the way of his appointment, but fears to tell him why, for who will believe Lord Illingworth to be a man of no importance?

Edited and introduced by Emma French.
