The affair between Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas, the son of the Marquess of Queensbury, led to a series of three trials in 1895, and Wilde's imprisonment for two years. He died three and a half years later in Paris at the age of 46. This recording recreates these sensational trials from the original transcripts.
