Competition: Win tickets to see An Ideal Husband starring Freddie and Edward Fox

by -

The Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde‘s An Ideal Husband explores corruption and morality, bringing an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. 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 past financial chicanery.

A witty new production from director Jonathan Church, (Singin’ in the Rain and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Chichester; West End) An Ideal Husband opens at the Vaudeville Theatre (April 20–July 14), before playing at the Theatre Royal Bath as part of their Summer Season (July 18–August 4).

Starring real-life father and son Edward Fox (The Audience, West End; The Day of the Jackal, ITV) and Olivier award-nominated Freddie Fox (Travesties, The Judas Kiss, West End; Cucumber and Banana, Channel 4; E4), Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber (Silk, BBC; Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s Globe), Olivier award-winner Nathaniel Parker (Wolf Hall, West End and Broadway; This House, West End), Sally Bretton (Not Going Out, BBC; King Lear, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen, BBC).

The Oscar Wilde Season rolls elegantly on; don’t miss it!
