    An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde

May 1998

 

Distinguished politician Sir Robert Chiltern faces public disgrace
when a past secret is exposed and exploited. He starts to lose not
only his position but also the love of his wife who has always regarded
him as "an ideal".

With its themes of hidden scandal and blackmail, 'An Ideal Husband' 
could be viewed with hindsight as Oscar Wilde's most autobiographical
play, premiering in 1895, the year in which the author's own personal
life reached its nadir. Although serious in its main subject matter,
the play is awash with typical Wildean witticisms.
