Oscar Wilde's social comedy, An Ideal Husband, has charmed and challenged audiences since its glamorous London opening in 1895, which the Prince of Wales attended. When a prominent politician is blackmailed over a youthful indiscretion, society is forced to examine whether idealized notions of goodness and morality serve to uphold society or become tools of destruction. In the context of contemporary quests to grapple with the past honestly, Wilde's sparkling and profound play is unparalleled in beckoning us to love the world "in all its tainted glory." This Warbler Classics edition includes an afterword by Ulrich Baer and George Bernard Shaw's review of the original stage production.
