Additional Comments
Wildeâ??s witty and timeless comedy of pyramid schemes, insider trading and political blackmail is a tour-de-force of ensemble acting. An Ideal Husband requires a strong core cast of 3 women (25-40) and 3 men (35-65) as well as a variety of smaller parts for both men and women. Gorgeously stylish, An Ideal Husband is a funny play with as much intelligence as heart. Its characters are vibrant, dimensional and delightfully Wilde.
