This adaptation begins at a distinguished dinner party in Washington D.C., where we meet Robert Chiltern, a wealthy member of the US Senate; his wife; his sister; and his charming bachelor friend, Arthur Goring. Deceit and lies weave themselves throughout as Wilde pulls the curtain on the hypocrisy of moralistic society and with wit and gaiety, paints a scathing critique of gossips, income gaps, sexist attitudes, and the perils of protecting one’s morals.
The production stars a dynamic cast of local talent and includes: Cam Taylor; Brooke Howard; Peter Fischaber; Bailey Lucien; Brenna Crow; Doug Carlton; Christine Jolly; and Eric Strimple.
