Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband

By Oscar Wilde

January 15 – March 3, 2013
Mainstage Production History

AN IDEAL HUSBAND is a wonderfully witty story of romance, insider trading, and scandal! Sir Robert is a highly 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 story unfolds, it's revealed that the man thought to be perfect is flawed, the man with all the flaws must do something right, and the question remains: what makes AN IDEAL HUSBAND? Oscar Wilde's timeless comedy explores morality and the greater standard that seems to fall upon those individuals in the public eye.
