    In three short months, Oscar Wilde, the most celebrated playwright and wit in Victorian England, was toppled from the apex of British society into humiliation and ruin. Openly drawing from trial documents, newspaper accounts and writings from the key players, 'A Waste of Shame' reconstructs Wilde's three trials and the events surrounding them, whilst also examining how the legend of Oscar Wilde emerged in the years following his imprisonment and death.
