The Crescent Theatre Touring Company presents

An Ideal Husband

by Oscar Wilde

Touring the West Midlands in June and July 2011 at various venues - see below for dates

Once again, Oscar Wilde creates a blend of farce and morality highlighting human frailty and social hypocrisy.

Sir Robert Chilton, a highly successful government minister, has a secret which is discovered and exposed. He is accused of having exploited government secrets for his own gain early in his political career. With this revelation from Mrs. Cheveley comes the threat of blackmail and the ruin of Sir Robert's career. Yet in order to be a successful blackmailer, one's own reputation must be beyond reproach...

The Crescent Theatre's Summer Tour continues from strength to strength with a new venue this year at Highbury Hall. Performances are outdoors and subject to the vagaries of summer weather - be prepared.

Please bring your own seating and a picnic! Some venues can provide refreshments.
