The Oscar Wilde Collection

Oscar Wilde, read by a full cast, L.A. Theatre Works, unabridged, 10 CDs, 8.5 hrs., $69.95 ISBN 978-1-5808-1753-0

Fans of Oscar Wilde will delight in this collection of four of the author’s best-loved plays and a theatrical adaptation of his only novel. These full-cast productions—Lady Windermere’s Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, The Importance of Being Earnest—feature energetic performances from a host of talented actors including Eric Stoltz, Martin Jarvis, Alfred Molina, and Jacqueline Bisset. Razor-sharp comedic timing from all the players will entertain listeners while the production of A Picture of Dorian Gray offers a darker pleasure and a cast that delivers a taut, suspenseful performance.
