An Ideal Husband 

by Oscar Wilde

A new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, was 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) and Freddie Fox (The Judas Kiss, West End), 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; King Lear, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen, BBC).

The Importance of Being Earnest 

by Oscar Wilde

A new production of one of the funniest plays in English, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, is captured live from the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End. Wilde’s much-loved masterpiece throws love, logic and language into the air to make one of theatre’s most dazzling firework displays.

Michael Fentiman’s witty new production stars Olivier Award winner Sophie Thompson (Guys and Dolls, Chichester/West End; Four Weddings and a Funeral) and Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey, ITV), alongside Fiona Button (The Split, BBC), Pippa Nixon (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, RSC) and Stella Gonet (Handbagged, Hampstead Theatre/West End).

A fresh take on Wilde’s ‘comic masterpiece’ (Guardian), this ‘hilarious’ adaptation breaths ‘new and vital’ life (WhatsOnStage) into ‘one of the most immaculately crafted stage comedies of all time’ (The Stage). Don’t miss the ‘magnificent’ (Sunday Times) final installment of Classic Spring’s critically acclaimed Oscar Wilde Season, a year-long celebration of the brilliant Victorian playwright.
