I feel like I can't say anything more about it. Brilliant. Witty, and clever.

I was so surprised to find that nearly all the famous Oscar Wilde quotations I have ever heard are from this play. The social commentary was wonderfully portrayed and the dialogue was flawless.

And in this tour de perfection, Lady Bracknell stood out as an absolute wretched gem. Oh, to be able to just talk to people like that. So liberating! She is fantastic, even if she is an insufferable snob!
