An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde

Wilde's subtle satire of the British hypocrisy of the late 1800s toys with the vulnerability of public figures and the powerful playing card of dirty secrets. "An Ideal Husband" portrays the delicate balance between righteousness, love, and betrayal, and serves it up with a generous smattering of wit and elegance. Recently filmed with Rupert Everett, Cate Blanchett and Julianne Moore.

About The Author

A gifted poet, playwright and wit, Oscar Wilde was a phenomenon in 19th century England. He was illustrious for preaching the importance of style in life and art, and of attacking Victorian narrow mindedness.

Wilde is immortalised through his works, and the stories he wrote for children such as "The Happy Prince" and "The Selfish Giant" are still vibrant in the imagination of the public.
