It is 1892, the aesthetics and arts and crafts movements have made their imapct.
Morals and manners are changing as the world moves from the equipoise of the 1850's
to the unease following the recessions of the 1870's. Into this world steps Lady
Windermere, a throw-back to more understandable and circumscribed times. However, it
is not only she but all the characters in this play who are forced to ask questions
about goodness, morality and reality.
