An Ideal Husband

Recorded live at the Vaudeville Theatre last June, Jonathan Church directs the ever-entertaining and topical Oscar Wilde satire.

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 Day of the Jackal, ITV) and Freddie Fox (Cucumber & Banana,Channel 4; E4), Olivier Award-nominated Frances Barber (Silk, BBC; Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s Globe), Olivier Award-winner Nathaniel Parker (This House, West End; Wolf Hall, West End & Broadway), Sally Bretton (Not Going Out, BBC) and Susan Hampshire (Monarch of the Glen, BBC).
