“Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde” was written by Moisés Kaufman. The play details the true story of the three trials of the Irish author as he is accused of gross indecency; due to having a romantic and sexual relationship with another man. The play contains quotes and transcripts from the real-life trial.

Students, faculty and staff can get into the show for free by presenting their Washburn identification card at the box office. General admission to the show will cost $8, cash or check only. Tickets will be available in the box office an hour before the show begins.
