Les deux époux, qui répètent une pièce de théâtre avec leur troupe amateur locale, persuadent George de se joindre à eux. Cela permet à George, entre autres, de jouer des scènes d'amour appuyées avec Tamara, la femme de son meilleur ami Jack, riche homme d'affaires et mari infidèle. Jack, éploré, tente de persuader Monica, l'épouse de George qui s'est séparée de lui pour vivre avec le fermier Simeon, de revenir auprès de son mari pour l'accompagner dans ses derniers mois.

Gross indecency : the three trials of Oscar Wilde by Moisés Kaufman( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 1895 Oscar Wilde brought a libel suit against the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of his youthful lover, who had publicly maligned him as a sodomite. In doing so, England's reigning man of letters set in motion a series of events that would culminate in his ruin and imprisonment. For within a year the bewildered Wilde himself was on trial for acts of "gross indecency" and - implicity - for a vision of art that outraged Victorian propriety." "In this work of the theater - a smash hit Off Broadway - Moises Kaufman turns the trials of Oscar Wilde into a riveting human and intellectual drama. Expertly interweaving courtroom testimony with excerpts from Wilde's writings and the words of his contemporaries, Gross Indecency unveils its subject in all his genius and human frailty, his age in all its complacency and repression."--Jacket
