Praise for GROSS INDECENCY:
“His style was his umbrella, his armor, his all-purpose defense system, and for many years it seemed to shelter Oscar Wilde most effectively. There came a moment, however, in 1895 when the playwright was betrayed by his own wit, after which he would never again be able to gain control of his life. In the absolutely gripping GROSS INDECENCY: THE THREE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE, written and directed with a scintillating style of its own by Moisés Kaufman, that moment is identified with such startling precision and clarity that it feels like the inexorable moment of reversal in a classic tragedy.” —NY Times.
“A triumph…truth, purity, and simplicity suffuse [this] thoroughly engrossing new play…sweeps away cobwebs and distortions, allowing complex, credible human beings to emerge from history.” —Washington Post.
“A dazzling coup de theatre, at once compelling history and chilling human drama.” —Time Magazine.
“Stunning…taut, shattering, yet delightfully exuberant…altogether fascinating.” —NY Newsday.
