Oscar Wilde: An Ideal Husband (U)

Recorded encore of the acclaimed season of Oscar Wilde classics from the Classic Spring Theatre Company
A new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, filmed live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End, is coming to the big screen. Directed by Jonathan Church, this entertaining and still topical play brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. The talented ensemble cast includes real-life father and son Edward and Freddie Fox, Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber, Olivier Award-winner Nathaniel Parker, Sally Bretton and Susan Hampshire.

As an ambitious government minister, Sir Robert Chiltern’s smooth ascent to the top seems assured until Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning proof of his previous financial chicanery.
