The brilliance of Oscar Wilde’s AN IDEAL HUSBAND is that it is a stylish critique of politicians and social morality, whilst leaving the audience convinced they have seen uplifting and light-hearted entertainment.
Sir Robert Chiltern (Alex Hanson) is a successful Government minister, well-off and with a loving wife (Rachael Stirling). All this is threatened when Mrs Cheveley (Samantha Bond) appears in London with damning evidence of a past misdeed. Sir Robert turns for help to his friend Lord Goring (Elliot Cowan), an apparently idle philanderer and the despair of his family. For the next 48 hours all their lives will be turned upside down.
AN IDEAL HUSBAND performs at the Vaudeville Theatre from Thursday 4th November 2010 – Saturday 19th February 2011. Book AN IDEAL HUSBAND tickets today!
