An Ideal Husband
by Oscar Wilde
Directed by T. Samantha Barrios
Produced by Terry Delegeane and Melodie S. Rivers
January 9 – February 14, 2015
Scandal! Blackmail! Corruption! Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband is a scathing satire of the British aristocracy filled to the brim with temptations, betrayals and secret liaisons. Sir Robert Chiltern, a brilliant politician and perfect gentleman, can do no wrong in the eyes of his charming wife Lady Chiltern. But when the calculating Mrs. Cheveley appears on the scene, Sir Robert’s marriage, reputation, and promising career are put at risk. With his world about to unravel, Sir Robert turns to his lifelong friend Lord Arthur Goring, the most eligible bachelor in town, to extricate him from the web of lies that seeks to undermine both his public and private honor.
