A new production of Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece will be broadcast from the Vaudeville Theatre in the West End.
An Ideal Husband explores corruption and morality, bringing an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. 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 past financial chicanery.
