Edward Fox and his son Freddie are to star as a fictional father and son in An Ideal Husband in the West End.

They will be joined in the cast of the Oscar Wilde play, which runs at the Vaudeville Theatre, by Frances Barber.

Freddie Fox will play Lord Goring in the production, with Edward Fox as the Earl of Caversham. Barber will appear as Mrs Cheveley.

An Ideal Husband is the third production in a season of Wilde plays at the Vaudeville, produced by Dominic Dromgoole’s Classic Spring company.

The production is directed by Jonathan Church and will run at the Theatre Royal Bath – where Church is artistic director of the summer season – after its West End run.

It plays in London from April 20 to July 14, and in Bath from July 18 to August 4.

An Ideal Husband is part of a programme at the Vaudeville that also includes A Woman of No Importance and Lady Windermere’s Fan, which is running until April 7.

The year-long season also includes a new folk opera by Guy Chambers, The Selfish Giant, which is co-produced with the Royal and Derngate, and The Importance of Being Earnest, which concludes the programme.
