In this new audio edition, narrators James Warwick and Alison Larkin take on the roles of all nine characters. Both performers expertly create unique personalities for all the roles, showing the extent of their talents. Even with only two actors at work, it’s nearly impossible to confuse the characters except where Wilde intends. As the characters indulge in high jinks, Warwick and Larkin are a delightful combination—for listeners familiar with the story and newcomers. Get ready to listen and laugh as Wilde’s classic comedy comes to life once more.”

About the Author

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by the radical aesthetics of Walter Pater. Flamboyant wit and man-about-town, Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. After publishing two volumes of short stories between 1887 and 1891, his social-comedy plays such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest established his critical and commercial success. In 1895 Wilde was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for homosexual conduct and died in Paris in obscurity a few years after his release.
