An Ideal Husband
1 - 19 July 2014
by Oscar Wilde
‘To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance’
Set in an upper-class world of fops and dandies, Oscar Wilde’s witty social satire questions the morality of seemingly upstanding politicians.
Sir Robert is a well-respected politician whose spotless reputation is the pride of his beautiful wife and adoring sister. But when an old acquaintance threatens to reveal a dark secret from Robert’s past, only his womanizing, party-loving best friend is scheming and dishonest enough to come to his aid.
As the plot unfolds, it’s revealed that Sir Robert is deeply flawed; the man with all the flaws must do something right for once and the question remains: what makes An Ideal Husband.
This new production, filled with an abundance of dark and delightful witticisms, will delight Wilde enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
