His Most Obedient Servant is a tragic tale of the struggles of gay men in Victorian Britain. It is late-Victorian England and Francis is personal secretary to Lord Rosebery, a candidate in a battle to succeed Gladstone as Prime Minister. Francis’ father, the Marquis of Queensberry, is given information suggesting the relationship between his son and Rosebery is sexual, and is determined to stop it. Queensberry’s actions have a profound effect on Oscar Wilde (his lover, Bosie, is Francis’s brother). They have an even more profound and tragic effect on Francis.
