Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde


Price: $5
Thumbnail for - Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde Irish playwright, author, and aesthete Oscar Wilde is often credited for having "invented" homosexuality. Created by the Tectonic Theatre Project, the theatre-journalists who brought us The Laramie Project, this innovative historical account follows the three separate trials Wilde and his lover endured before ultimately being found guilty of “Gross Indecency.” Revisiting the homophobia of eras past reminds us to celebrate the heroes who would not allow love to be subjugated at profound risk - long before equal marriage rights became a torch to bear or the English language could begin to conceive the acronym LGBTQ.
This is a staged reading performed as part of The OUTwright Festival.
