Southern Virginia University presents Oscar Wilde’s witty comedy/drama, "An Ideal Husband" runs February 16-17 and 23-24 in Chandler Hall at 7:30 pm.

Sir Robert Chiltern is a rising star in Parliament in Victorian London, who turns to his best friend when he’s blackmailed by a beautiful woman who knows a nasty secret about how he made his personal fortune. A successful film was made of the play in 1999 starring Jeremy Northam, Rupert Everett, Julianne Moore, Minnie Driver and Cate Blanchett.

Tickets are $8 general admission and $6 for seniors, children, and SVU faculty, staff, and students. A small handling fee will also be charged. Babes in arms and toddlers are not allowed in the theatre. (Note: Please use your thoughtful discretion about bringing children to this show. The production is very sophisticated, and children under 12 will likely get very restless).

Doors will open at 7:00 pm. Tickets purchased online can be picked up in Chandler Hall at the pre-paid/will call door. All advanced tickets are released at 7:20 pm each night of the show. If the event is sold out online, some tickets may be available at the door, but most nights sell out completely, so arrive early.
