An Ideal Husband at the Vaudeville Theatre

Vaudeville Theatre, 404 Strand, London, WC2R 0NH

The Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home.

‘Launched with a flourish’ (The Sunday Times), Classic Spring’s Oscar Wilde Season promises to cast new light on Wilde’s ground-breaking work, showing how more than a century on, he still strikes to the heart of social scandal.

An Ideal Husband runs from 20 April 2018 until 14 July 2018 at the Vaudeville Theatre.

WHAT’S THE STORY

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.
