An Ideal Husband
About An Ideal Husband
An ‘enchantingly comic’ (Independent) and ‘stylish revival’ (Guardian) from director Jonathan Church, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband ‘dynamically re-mints a classic text’, exploring political corruption and morality in this ‘thought-provoking, richly enjoyable production’ (WhatsOnStage).
‘A delicious double act’ (Independent), the enchanting repartee between real-life father & son Edward and Freddie Fox is a joy to behold; and they’re joined on stage by the ‘marvellous’ Nathaniel Parker (Times), ‘brilliant’ Susan Hampshire (Guardian), ‘superb’ Sally Bretton, and ‘thrilling’ Frances Barber (WhatsOnStage).
‘Beautifully played and cast’ (London Theatre), Faith Omole’s ‘delightful’ Mabel Chiltern tops off an array of ‘masterful performances’ (Evening Standard) from a talented company.
The Rolls-Royce of English comedies, don’t miss this ‘incredibly funny’ (Telegraph) and ‘triumphant’ (Time Out) production from Classic Spring’s Oscar Wilde season. Book tickets while you can!

The theatre’s programme is set to continue with a variety of new plays, revivals, comedy and musicals with which it has been entertaining theatregoers for nearly 140 years.
