An Ideal Husband
DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE AND DANCE STUDIO SERIES
By Oscar Wilde | Directed by Susan Kerner
Blackmail, scandal, and romantic intrigue threaten the domestic tranquility of an ambitious politician in Oscar Wilde’s 1895 social satire. A masterful blend of wit and high stakes drama, An Ideal Husband feels remarkably contemporary as it examines the corrupt sources of great wealth and the influence of money on political power. Wilde’s characters struggle with dishonesty and hypocrisy while testing the limits of love and forgiveness.
