  • Jago mistakes Widowers' Houses for one of Wilde's plays. As Wilde informs him, it was actually written by his fellow Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw.

Story notes[]

  • Although the overall series is not given a date more specific than the 1890s until the audio story The Final Act, Oscar Wilde's play A Woman of No Importance premiered on 19 April 1893, whereas George Bernard Shaw's play Widowers' Houses premiered on 9 December 1892 in real life. However, Litefoot, referring to "the love that dares not speak its name," quotes the poem Two Loves by Lord Alfred Douglas, which was originally published in 1894.
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde previously played an important role in the audio story Echoes of Grey, which was likewise written by John Dorney.
