An Ideal Husband
by Oscar Wilde

May 8 - 31, 2008

Henry Heymann Theatre, Stephen Foster Memorial, Oakland

Sir Robert Chiltern – brilliant politician, perfect gentleman, and ideal husband – is in the verge of obtaining cabinet rank. Then the scheming and seductive Mrs. Cheveley threatens to reveal a dark secret from his past, and the foundations of his prized career and marriage look set to crumble. In order to be a successful blackmailer, however, one’s own reputation must be beyond reproach! A dazzling blend of farce and morality, An Ideal Husband stars Beth Hylton, Paul Todaro, and 2007 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Performer of the Year David Whalen.
