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.
