owildeimageGoodreadsA Trivial Comedy for Serious People

The classic comedy lampooning the lifestyles of the rich and richer has never gone out of style since it first premiered in London in 1895. Thought to be the masterpiece of the prolific Oscar Wilde, this delicious farce is a feast of clever language and broad characterizations. You will delight in all the clever twists and turns of these larger than life characters as they navigate the tempestuous waters of their social seas. And in the air-conditioned comfort of the Merc, who could ask for anything more?
