Town Hall Theatre Company (THT) is excited to announce the final show in its 2016-2017 Season, the witty and “Wilde” AN IDEAL HUSBAND. Oscar Wilde’s scintillating and timely comedy, AN IDEAL HUSBAND, will have 12 performances, including two previews, June 1 through June 24, 2017, at Town Hall Theatre Company, 3535 School Street, in Lafayette, CA. Tickets are $20 - $32, and are available through the Box Office at (925) 283-1557 or online at www.TownHallTheatre.com. In Oscar Wilde’s brilliantly witty comedy, fate catches up to politician Robert Chiltern when a mysterious woman produces a letter revealing a past misdeed. Is this a public scandal or private shame? One of the more serious of Wilde’s social comedies, AN IDEAL HUSBAND focuses on the often corrupt underpinnings of wealth and power, how information and knowledge in politics hold sway, and how public and personal morality can collide. AN IDEAL HUSBAND also takes a good-natured poke at the institution of marriage, asking us if it is it truly possible to try to have an "ideal" marriage. In the end, Wilde’s message is surprisingly benign: only love really matters, only love will lead to happiness. A play about infidelity and intrigue, political and personal, AN IDEAL HUSBAND remains uncannily relevant more than a century after it was first performed in 1895. “I think the truly great writers and playwrights stick around because they find a way to show a very particular slice of life at a specific moment in time, all the while showing the very universal themes and motivations of the human condition,” Director Hovey says. “Oscar Wilde does this especially brilliantly with AN IDEAL HUSBAND, which makes it topical, scathingly witty and thoroughly entertaining at the same time.”
