An Ideal Husband is one of Oscar Wilde’s most famous works, and features his trademark wit and skewering of Victorian upper class society. Successful government minister Sir Robert Chiltern gets a very unwelcome blast from the past when Mrs Cheveley appears in London. Backstabbing and blackmail are the least of his worries once his very proper wife gets wind of some less than ideal political dealings in his past.
Screen legend Edward Fox will play the Earl of Caversham and Freddie Fox will play his son Lord Goring. Freddie is no stranger to Wilde, having previously played Wilde’s real-life lover Lord Alfred ‘Bosie’ Douglas on stage in The Judas Kiss.
An Ideal Husband will be directed by Jonathan Church, and will also star Frances Barber in the role of Mrs Cheveley. Catch the show in London before it moves on to the Theatre Royal Bath for the summer season.
