The Last Days of Oscar Wilde looks at the final years of the man, while exiled in Paris, whom many regard as the patron saint of the LGBT community and the role model for many gay men.

Having fallen from the heights of success – with his highly acclaimed stage comedies such as The Importance of Being Earnest and books such as The Picture of Dorian Gray – Wilde was forced to seek refuge in Paris after being convicted in London of homosexual activities and receiving a sentence of two years hard labor at Reading Jail. This ruined his health and left him with only a few years to live before he died at the age of 46.

The play examines the relationship between Wilde and his wife as well as his relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas, who was largely responsible for Wilde’s downfall. The work also examines his friendship with Canadian-born Robbie Ross, who proved to be Wilde’s most loyal friend and supporter.
