I've searched all over and I believe this is a part of the 1907/8 series.

Wilde's drama was first performed at London's Haymarket Theatre on April 19, 1893. A contemporary reviewer praised "the keenness of [Wilde's] intellect, the individuality of his point of view, the excellence of his verbal style, and above all the genuinely dramatic quality of his inspirations. I do not hesitate to call… this play the most virile and intelligent… piece of English dramatic writing of our day". 


Oscar Wilde's audacious drama of social scandal centres around the revelation of Mrs Arbuthnot's long-concealed secret. A house party is in full swing at Lady Hunstanton's country home, when it is announced that Gerald Arbuthnot has been appointed secretary to the sophisticated, witty Lord Illingworth. Gerald's mother stands in the way of his appointment, but fears to tell him why, for who will believe Lord Illingworth to be a man of no importance?
