January 1, 2015

Scandal! Blackmail! Corruption! Full of Wilde's well-known wit, rapid fire repartee and social commentary, "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.

Featured in the cast are Gail Bernardi, Harold Dershimer, Lucas Hannig, Michael Hovance, Branda Lock, Doug Mattingly, Alicia Reynolds, Melodie S. Rivers, Collette Rutherford, Michael Sandidge, Bruce Starrett, Hollister Starrett, Andrea Stradling and Jack Winnick.
