Reading Gaol concerns Oscar Wilde's imprisonment in Reading Gaol after his infamous court case, persecuted relentlessly by the sadistic and pious prison governor for refusing to admit he is a common criminal. George Bernard Shaw, Frank Harris, Sid Edward Carson and Lord Alfred Douglas appear as Wilde justifies his self-inflicted martyrdom.
‘Football is all very well as a game for rough girls, but is hardly suitable for delicate boys' - Oscar Wilde.
