Hugely entertaining.

The Telegraph

The most effervescently serious comedy Wilde ever wrote, as well as one of the funniest.

The New York Times

Runs like an intricately plotted noir thriller with a fine coating of wit.

The Daily Express

Oscar Wilde’s comedies never go out of style and the prospect of An Ideal Husband with Christie Whelan Browne and Gina Riley should tickle anyone.
