Watermark Theatre is performing 3 fantastic plays this summer :
An Ideal Husband – The story of Oscar Wilde’s wickedly funny 1895 play, An Ideal Husband, is shockingly current. Robert Chiltern, with his spotless reputation, is universally expected to be the England’s next Prime Minister. When the gorgeous and conniving Laura Cheveley threatens to reveal a dark secret from Robert’s past, only his womanizing, party-loving best friend is scheming enough to come to his aid.
