FIU Theatre’s production of Oscar Wilde’s “An Ideal Husband,” directed by Phillip M. Church, opens on Friday, September 26. The play revolves around a high ranking politician with a checkered past, whose secrets are exposed by an ambitious woman seeking personal gain and status. This psychological thriller, set in Victorian London, encompasses dance, music, comedy and drama.
A a man who lived a dualistic life, married with children while besotted by the angelic innocence of the young Lord Alfred Douglas, Oscar Wilde harbored his share of secrets, and as is common with many of his works, personal threads of Wilde’s life are liberally woven into the play. The Department of Theatre invites you to come out and enjoy this psychological, literary commentary on late 19th century British social behavior while supporting the arts.
