One night, a society palm-reader agreed to see Oscar Wilde in her London flat. Wilde’s lover was urging him to sue the Marquis of Queensberry for criminal libel. But Wilde’s friends were warning him to leave town. In Extremis reveals the strange turmoil of that night, as a man at the height of his fame turns to a complete stranger for advice about a potentially life-changing decision.

Howard Brenton was born in 1942 in Portsmouth, where his father was a policeman and a lay preacher. He had written several plays for the Royal Court, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the National Theatre before "Romans in Britain" (1980) was famously the cause of a failed prosecution by moral crusaders.
