Abstract: It is a tragedy set in Russia and is loosely based on the life of Vera Zasulich. It was Wilde's first play, and the first to be performed. Vera is set in Russia, in the time period 1795–1800, but tends to be rather inaccurate with its treatment of Russian history: the heroine of the title, Vera, plots to kill the country’s tyrannical Czar, in league with the Nihilists – a revolutionary political group which did not actually exist at that point.
