A tender love story, a serpentine villainess, a glittering setting in London society and a shower of Wildean witticisms are only a few of the reasons this play has enjoyed hugely successful revivals in London and New York. This 1895 drama also seems eerily prescient, as it explores the plight of a promising young politician, desperate to hide a secret in his past. With empathy and wit, Wilde explores the pitfalls of holding public figures to higher standards than the rest of us. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Rosalind Ayres as Lady Gertrude Chiltern: Jacqueline Bisset as Mrs. Cheveley; Paul Gutrecht as Vicomte de Nanjac; Martin Jarvis as Sir Robert Chiltern; Robert Machray as Phipps; Miriam Margolyes as Lady Markby; Alfred Molina as Lord Goring; Jim Norton as Lord Caversham; Yeardley Smith as Mabel Chiltern.

I love it when the audiobooks are recordings of a play performed by several actors. This was short--about an hour and a half--and hilarious.
