An Ideal Husband description

Last chance to see Jonathan Church's 'incredibly funny' (The Times) and 'Wildely charming' (Mail on Sunday) revival of Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband. Must end 14 July! 

‘Beautifully played and cast’ (London Theatre), real-life father & son Edward and Freddie Fox are a 'delicious double act' (Independent) alongside the ‘marvellous’ Nathaniel Parker (Times), ‘brilliant’ Susan Hampshire (Guardian), ‘superb’ Sally Bretton, ‘thrilling’ Frances Barber (WhatsOnStage) and 'delightful' Faith Omole, making her West End debut (Evening Standard). 

The Rolls-Royce of English comedies, don’t miss this ‘triumphant’ (Time Out) new production. Book tickets while you still can!

The final instalment of Classic Spring’s Oscar Wilde Season is now on sale. Don’t miss The Importance of Being Earnest, starring Sophie Thompson and Jeremy Swift (20 July – 20 October).

Worst part of night was the 19th century seating and a rude staff member. He should remember who is paying his wages

The story was very good, funny and very well played. I had to pay an extra attention though because the dialogs were not very well heard in upper circle. The overall experience was good.

Good night out

Lovely show, beautiful dresses and great acting. I did think the first 30 mins was a bit slow but then it got really interesting and pulled you in. Freddie Fox was funny and amusing. Frances Barber played MRS Cheavley you felt sorry for her then you hated her. It was lovely to see Susan Hampshire and Sally, Edward and Nathaniel played the parts of the upper crust Lords and Lady's very well, you felt there turmoil and there was some witty one liners.
