What I liked

Richard Abraham’s portrayal of Wilde.

What I didn't like

Too short to do justice to its subject.
The venue is uncomfortable and stuffy. Poor sightlines.

My overall impression

An admirable attempt, but tries to do too much with too little.
Wilde deserves more depth. The playwright needs to dig deeper.
Moments of great emotion are briefly touched upon (loss of friendship, family and love) and gone. Trying to touch a lot of bases with insufficient time.
