Government minister, Sir Robert Chiltem, is respectable, well-off, with a loving wife. When the conniving Mrs. Cheveley appears with evidence of a past misdeed and threatens to blackmail him, his best friend tries (through a number of comedic entanglements) to lead Robert and his family out of harm. But there are others who have desires and ambitions all their own.  Written in 1895, there are countless elements of today’s turbulent times: feminism, blackmail, political corruption, morality and mistrust, love and forgiveness, all served up with the effervescent Oscar Wilde wit. Will this cocktail mix of characters finally learn what it means to be “an ideal husband”?   $22/$20         

"Please be advised that AN IDEAL HUSBAND contains adult themes, including sexuality."

Deep in December our hearts should remember, and follow

It’s 1960 and rock star Conrad Birdie is the biggest thing to top the charts. Women love him, men want to be him and teenage girls around the country scream with glee at the mere mention of his name. Then the United States Army drafts Birdie and his fans are devastated, but none more than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson, whose song Birdie was just about to record. Albert's longtime girlfriend, Rosie, pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will perform  on television to and give “One Last Kiss” to a fan selected in a contest. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee declared the winner, but no one has counted on the jealous wrath of her boyfriend. $24/$22
