Theatre Preview: An Ideal Husband, 10 – 15 November, King’s Theatre, Edinburgh

19 Oct

Dynasty diva Kate O’Mara will join a glittering cast of some of Britain’s top notch actors to reprise the role of the devilish Mrs Cheveley next month as Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband takes to the stage of the King’s Theatre.

Showcasing characteristic Wildean wit, An Ideal Husband charts the clandestine ins and outs of London society when Cheveley attempts to blackmail British Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Sir Robert Chiltern (the original Robin of Sherwood, Michael Praed).

Threatening to expose him to his wife as a fraudster who sold a cabinet secret to boost his own fledgling career she sets about to use Chiltern’s growing parliamentary influence to her own financial ends.

Will Mrs Cheveley succeed in her devious doings or can Sir Robert uphold his image of an Ideal Husband? Find out at King’s 10-15 November.
