UCL SU Drama presents An Ideal Husband


An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde

Amidst the glamor and frivolity of high society’s parties and late-night calls, a series of scandals are exposed, forcing the characters to confront which of their ideals they are willing to sacrifice for love. Conspiracies and miscommunications make for daft comedy and political satire which shows us that everything and nothing is as it seems.

The Chiltern’s ideal marriage is threatened by a mysterious lady and a dodgy deal made in Argentina eighteen years earlier. The plot thickens when it appears her past features both Chiltern and his best friend Goring whose precious career, not as a politician like Chiltern but as a bachelor, is also threatened when he is given 24 hours to find a wife. He finds much more in a third Chiltern.
