An Ideal Husband
November 10 - 13, 2016
When a man’s youthful indiscretions come to light, who can save his reputation? His wife, of course. RPP’s ‘Battle of the Sexes’ begins with blackmail, deception and political posturing among London’s Elite in a delightful comedy written by Oscar Wilde in 1895. Meryl Schaffer, our new Artistic Director brings this frothy play to life as a staged reading. Ann Fletcher, Sally Johnson, Jim Sullivan, Hal McCombs and David Jenkins star, along with some marvelous new actors, too. Since this Wilde production takes place in a cabaret setting at the Crowninshield House, you may enjoy a glass of wine as you laugh at all the public and private displays of British Honour. An Ideal Husband is an ideal way to begin our 27th season. Remember, you bring the wine and we’ll bring the fun.
