Middle Ground Theatre Company present An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde with an all star cast

The year is 1895 and politician Sir Robert Chiltern is finding that the early ambition for success that led him to sell a cabinet secret, is coming back to haunt him. Mrs Chevely threatens to expose him, not least in the eyes of his adoring wife, unless he supports a dubious commercial scheme through the House of Commons. Will Sir Robert allow himself to be blackmailed or will he risk the loss of all he holds dear?

The cast of this stylish production of Wilde's comedy of manners is headed by Richard Walsh (Sick Note in London's Burning) who plays Sir Richard, and he is joined by veteran actor Dermot Walsh (familiar to millions from his myriad of TV, theatre and film roles), Brian Cant (the voice of Camberwick Green and Trumpton), Louise English (Lucia in Brushstrokes) Jean Rogers (from Emmerdale) and Marcus Gilbert (from the TV adaptation of Jilly Cooper's Riders).
