A new production of the Rolls-Royce of English comedies, Oscar Wilde’s AN IDEAL HUSBAND, filmed live at the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End on June 5, 2018, is coming to the big screen. 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 past financial chicanery. The talented ensemble cast includes real-life father and son Edward (The Audience, West End; The Day of the Jackal, ITV) and Freddie Fox (The Judas Kiss, West End; 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; King Lear, Shakespeare’s Globe) and Susan Hampshire (Forsyte Saga, Monarch of the Glen, BBC).

CAST: Edward Fox as Earl of Caversham, Freddie Fox as Lord Goring, Frances Barber as Mrs. Cheveley, Sally Bretton as Lady Chiltern, Nathaniel Parker as Lord Chiltern, Susan Hampshire as Lady Markby.
