AN IDEAL HUSBAND | LA BOITE THEATRE

18th of JUL – 6th of AUG

An Ideal Husband is a classic tale by Oscar Wilde that deals with un-married daughters and societal drama. This adaption is quite different from the tale you may know. Corruption, hypocrisy and blackmail. This adaption by award-winning playwright Lewis Treston is set in Canberra, 1996 and asks the audience why Australian Politics fails to keep up with the people it’s supposed to represent. If you're into politics, the 90s or good old drama this play might just be for you.
