Successful politician Sir Robert Chiltern has it all – money, power and the love of his adoring wife. But when a mysterious character threatens to expose a dark secret from his past, he becomes hopelessly embroiled in a world of insider trading, blackmail and deception.
Wilde’s effervescent high-society comedy stars the incomparable Gina Riley (Kath & Kim), as the grand Lady Markby, with a top-drawer cast including Michelle Lim Davidson (Utopia), Christie Whelan Browne (Born Yesterday), Simon Gleeson (Les Misérables) and William McInnes (The Last Man Standing), directed by MTC Associate Director Dean Bryant (Born Yesterday).
