|Aaron Weisberg and Tom Farley|
In the midst of his own infidelities to his wife via his live-in, male lover becoming headlines and a life-ruining court case, the famed and wildly popular poet, playwright, and novelist (as well as celebrated, itinerant speaker in the U.S.), Oscar Wilde, wrote a play still widely produced almost 125 years later, one ironically titled – given his own situation – An Ideal Husband. Pear Theatre stages a totally pleasing, well-acted-and-directed An Ideal Husband in which themes of political corruption, wealth at any costs, deception, and blackmail are countered by those of the power of friendship, love, and forgiveness – themes still very relevant in our own current, best-and-worst-of-times environment.
