AN IDEAL HUSBAND
Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis.
an ideal husband
by Oscar Wilde
Lord Goring is a wastrel and philandering socialite. His closest friend is a young and well-regarded politician who is considered to be a humanitarian, and even more, an ideal husband. When a new and unwelcome character comes into his life however, Robert Chiltern, the politician in question, finds the dark secrets of his earlier days at risk of being exposed. As the events unfold Goring, finds himself in the middle of the crisis, called on for help from all sides, whilst trying to consider what makes a person truly ideal.
This production will be a modernisation of 'An Ideal Husband', relocated in contemporary Russian high society - long coats and fur hats, but still full of all the witticisms you'd hope for from Oscar Wilde, whose own secrets and struggles with the "high moral tone" expected of him live on through Lord Goring.
Produced by the KDC Theatre, a Central London based amateur theatre group dedicated to giving Londoners the chance to put on and perform plays.
