On March 24, 1895, Mrs. Robinson, a society palm-reader, agreed to see Oscar Wilde in her London flat. Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, "Bosie," was urging him to sue the Marquis of Queensberry (Bosie's father) for libel. But Wilde's friends, wary of Queensberry's power, were warning him to leave town. A play about a man at the height of his fame asking a complete stranger about a potentially life-changing decision.
