An Ideal Husband (12A)

Venue: The Corn Hall

Broadcast Live from the Vaudeville Theatre, London

A new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, will be broadcast live to cinemas from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. Directed by Jonathan Church, this entertaining and still topical play brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. As an ambitious government minister, Sir Robert Chiltern’s smooth ascent to the top seems assured until Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning proof of his previous financial chicanery.

The talented ensemble cast includes real-life father and son Edward (The Audience, West End; The Day of the Jackal, ITV) and Freddie Fox (The Judas Kiss, West End), Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber (Silk, Antony and Cleopatra), Olivier Award-winner Nathaniel Parker, Sally Bretton and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen).

The final production in this hugely popular Oscar Wilde season, The Importance of Being Earnest, will be screened live at the Corn Hall on Tuesday 9 October.
