Temperamentals Opens Door on Gay Rights

Wingspan's Earnest is mild Wilde.

Wilde's farce about fictional Earnests and mistaken identities is a classic of English lit, of course. Even after repeated viewings (Dallas Theater Center had a dandy one a few years ago), there's always an amusing bit of dialogue that lands anew. This time around it was this gem: "All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his."
