    " I freaking love Oscar Wilde. That is all. "

    " This is a highly amusing play to read but it is even better when heard read aloud, on the stage or dramatised on television or film. It is chock full of witty one liners including the famous handbag scene and countless of other very, witty, barbed lines of dialogue from the master of the form that was Oscar Wilde. I was quite good to read but it is entirely another thing to see it acted out. I have only really seen the film version with Rupert Everett and Colin Firth but and was one of the funniest films that I have ever seen. I would love to one day see the play in the medium that it was created for as I imagine that would be a very enjoyable experience. "

    " A good play. I chose this play while thinking to read hamlet. .Loved this play. It is rare to read plays as thoughtful as Merchant of Venice, As humorous as Midsummer Night's dream, as dramatic as Julius Caesar and as romantic as Romeo and Juliet, but witty writing in this play too can be compared to Sakespeare's.
