STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Peak Wilde, which is to say brilliant.
The genius of Wilde is on full display right here. In 2006, scientists created the sharpest object known to man - a needle that tapers to a thickness of one atom. That has nothing on the pinpoint blade of Wilde's wit. His observations, his scathing swipes, his quips, are sheer genius, deliver a slashing commentary on high society at the time. Every other line is a mic drop, quotable gem.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
There are numerous productions of this fantastic play in audiobook format. The latest from Audible stars none other than Stephen Fry. The acting and voices are flawless, but I didn't enjoy the sound effects. Far too much bird tweeting interfering with the dialogue.
