An Ideal Husband

By Oscar Wilde

Directed by Jessica L Sosnoski

Sir Robert Chiltern is a respected government official and a loving husband. His friend, Lord Arthur Goring, is a notorious womanizer who lives a life of casual lounging, meaningless flirtations, and multiple illicit affairs. At least, that is how they are perceived. When old acquaintance Laura Cheveley arrives in London to stir up trouble, the lives of the two men become increasingly complicated and intertwined, and their true natures are revealed. Performed with an analysis on stereotyping and assumptions, this classic British comedy will be performed with a Steampunk flair and style.
