It was first performed in 1895 at the St James Theatre in London. It only ran for 86 performances due to the court case, concerning Wilde's homosexuality.
According to Wikipedia, Wilde had the father of his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas prosecuted which went to court. The trial unearthed evidence that caused Wilde to drop his charges and led to his own arrest and trial for gross indecency with other men. After two more trials he was convicted and imprisoned for two year's hard labour. Upon his release, he fled to Paris and never returned to England.
This play has since been performed many times and has also been turned into a film (there are three different versions in fact)
