An Ideal Husband
Oscar Wilde
(UK: Methuen Drama, @MethuenDrama, 2013; USA: Dover Thrift Editions, @doverpubs, 2001)

An Ideal Husband revolves around a blackmail scheme that forces a married couple to reexamine their moral standards – providing, along the way, a wry commentary on the rarity of politicians who can claim to be ethically pure. A supporting cast of young lovers, society matrons, an overbearing father, and a formidable femme fatale continually exchange sparkling repartee, keeping the play moving at a lively pace.
