Oscar Wilde’s
An Ideal
directed by Keith Baxter
Oscar Wilde’s wickedly witty yet touching
comedy revolves around blackmail, political
corruption and public and private honor in late
19th-century England, where “an ideal husband”
must be above reproach in both spheres. Sir
Robert Chiltern is a well-regarded politician
happily married to a loving wife. His status as an
ideal husband is threatened when evidence of
a past indiscretion appears. Sir Robert turns to
his friend Lord Goring, who takes matters into
his own hands. An Ideal Husband is directed
by Keith Baxter (The Imaginary Invalid, Mrs.
Warren’s Profession), whose production of The
Rivals was proclaimed “irrepressibly funny!”
(Chicago Tribune).

Ever After
Consider this story: a British king and his daughter have a bitter falling-
out over a matter of love. She leaves his court, only to return with an invading
foreign army. They reconcile tearfully.
Now consider this story: a brave man secretly marries the daughter of a
powerful benefactor. Shortly after the marriage, a devious Italian uses
circumstantial evidence to convince the man that his wife has been unfaithful
to him. Enraged, the man decides she must die.
Everyone who has seen or read William Shakespeare’s tragedies King Lear
and Othello knows how these stories end: Cordelia is hanged, and her father
Lear dies of grief and exhaustion moments later; Othello strangles his wife
Desdemona, and then stabs himself.
But imagine if the reprieve arrived in time, and Cordelia and Lear survived
to rule in peace? Imagine if Iago’s lies came to light in time, and Othello and
Desdemona lived on to repair their love? No need to imagine, for Shakespeare
wrote these miraculous endings into his 1610 play Cymbeline. King Cymbeline
and his daughter Imogen fall out over her elopement with the commoner
Posthumus; later, the scheming Iachimo persuades Posthumus of Imogen’s
infidelity. Posthumus orders his servant to kill Imogen, but she survives both
that attempt and a bloody battle between Britain and Rome. With the help of
the god Jupiter, Imogen reconciles with Cymbeline and Posthumus.
Perhaps because of its similarities to these earlier tragedies, Cymbeline first
appeared in the 1623 edition of Shakespeare’s complete works under the
category of “tragedy.” However, its combination of tragic elements with comic
and historical materials (not to mention that happy ending) makes it almost
unclassifiable. It appeared at the very end of Shakespeare’s nearly 20-year
career in playwriting, grouped with three similar plays: Pericles, The Winter’s Tale
and The Tempest. These plays all begin tragically, with tales of families destroyed
by ego, suspicion or outside enemies. After long separations and dangerous
journeys, the families are unexpectedly reunited. Some magical or divine force
has a hand in healing these broken pieces into a whole.
In Shakespeare’s time, these hybrid plays belonged to a newly-popular genre
known as tragicomedy. In 1608, the playwright John Fletcher attempted a
definition: “it [lacks] deaths, which is
enough to make it no tragedy, yet brings
some near it, which is enough to make it
no comedy.” By the 19th century, critics
were calling Shakespeare’s late plays
“romances,” a term which celebrated
their unexpected twists. “The interest is
not historical, or dependent upon fidelity
of portraiture, or the natural connection
of events,” said the poet Samuel Taylor
Coleridge in 1811, “but is a birth of the
Surely, though, Cymbeline and its kin
were not the first of Shakespeare’s
plays to feature near-death experiences
or fantastical plots. His comedies A
Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It
and Twelfth Night, for example, all begin
with families torn apart and end with
reunion. It is not simply the mixing of
tragic and comic elements, therefore,
that makes these plays so unique.
Inigo Jones's design for Jupiter descending on
an eagle, in Aurelian Townshend's masque Tempe
Restored (1632).
Perhaps what sets Cymbeline and the others apart from the plays that came
before is the moment when miraculous intervention turns the path of certain
destruction towards the hope of regeneration. In this, they share much with
fairy tales, which take their young heroes and heroines through unimaginable
perils to the reward of a happy ending. These tales seem designed to teach
us from a young age that life will be hard and unfair, but that enduring that
hardship will have been worth it in the end. They offer not realism, but rather
consolation. When Cymbeline’s protagonists linger at their lowest extreme, a god
appears to comfort them. “Whom best I love, I cross,” says Jupiter, “to make
my gift, the more delayed, delighted.” The delightful gift of reunion would not
be possible without the difficult delay of all that came before.
In the real world, stories that begin like King Lear and Othello usually end up as
those plays do. The limbs lopped off of the social and family trees rarely grow
back. But after years of facing down the bleak alleys of tragedy, Shakespeare
chose to end his career with hopeful magic. The divine transformation and
rebirth that end his last plays may be implausible, but they also seem right. We
want our stories to end like Cymbeline. The Ethiopian Story, a third-century Greek
tale that inspired the play, concludes by acknowledging the work of forces
“whose will it was that this should fall out wonderfully, as in a comedy. Surely
they made very contrary things agree, and joined sorrow and mirth, tears and
laughter together, and turned fearful and terrible things into a joyful banquet
in the end.” In the presence of joy, divisions between “tragedy,” “comedy” and
“history” disappear.

The orphaned Posthumus Leonatus was raised by King Cymbeline of Britain. Cymbeline’s
two sons, Guiderius and Arviragus, disappeared when they were babies, but his daughter
Imogen remained. Imogen secretly married Posthumus, and Cymbeline’s anger at his
daughter’s marrying a commoner led him to banish Posthumus. Departing for Rome,
Posthumus takes a ring from Imogen and leaves her a bracelet as a memento. In Rome, a
gentleman named Iachimo hears Posthumus boasting of Imogen’s virtue and bets that he
can make her cheat on her husband. Posthumus bets Imogen’s ring that Iachimo will
not succeed.
Back in Britain, the Queen (Cymbeline’s second wife) asks Doctor Cornelius to prepare a
poison for her. Suspecting her bad intentions, he gives her a potion that will produce only
the appearance of death. The Queen gives the mixture to Pisanio, Posthumus’ loyal servant
who has sworn to look after Imogen, and tells him that it is a powerful medicine.
After arriving in Britain and testing Imogen’s fidelity to Posthumus, Iachimo asks if she will
keep a trunk of treasure in her bedroom that night for safekeeping. Iachimo hides in the
trunk, and sneaks out in the middle of the night to record details of Imogen’s room and to
remove the bracelet from her arm. The next morning, Imogen rejects the advances of the
Queen’s son Cloten, infuriating him. Iachimo returns to Rome, where he describes Imogen’s
bedroom and shows Posthumus the bracelet. Heartbroken at his wife’s apparent infidelity,
Posthumus writes to Pisanio to command him to kill Imogen.
Under the influence of the Queen, Cymbeline refuses to pay the tribute to the Roman
emperor, and the ambassador Caius Lucius warns that war must follow. Cymbeline’s former
general Belarius lives in a cave in Wales along with his sons Polydore and Cadwal—really
Cymbeline’s kidnapped sons Guiderius and Arviragus. After luring Imogen to Wales, Pisanio
reveals Posthumus’ suspicions to her and proposes that they fake her death. Pisanio advises
her to dress as a boy and to join up with Caius Lucius; he sends her off with the Queen’s
potion in case of illness. Cloten interrogates Pisanio about Imogen’s whereabouts, and
leaves determined to kill Posthumus and rape Imogen, all while wearing Posthumus’ clothes.
Meanwhile, Imogen wanders into the cave of Belarius looking for food; when the three men
return home, they receive her kindly. But upon feeling ill, she takes some of the Queen’s
potion and falls into a death-like sleep. Cloten arrives and threatens Guiderius, who cuts
his head off. The men mourn Imogen, and place Cloten’s body next to hers. After they
leave, she awakes, and becomes inconsolable upon finding what appears to be Posthumus’
headless body. Just then, Caius Lucius’ army marches by, and Imogen joins up with them.
Posthumus, stricken with remorse upon receiving word that Imogen is dead, arrives in
Britain with the Romans but disguises himself as a British peasant to fight against Rome.
In the battle, Posthumus defeats Iachimo, and then joins Belarius, Guiderius and Arviragus
to lead Britain to victory. After they help to defeat Caius Lucius, Posthumus allows himself
to be arrested as a Roman sympathizer and imprisoned. As he sleeps in prison, the god
Jupiter appears in a vision and promises to save him. Just as he is about to be executed,
a summons arrives from Cymbeline. Doctor Cornelius tells Cymbeline that the Queen has
died, but only after confessing her plots against Cymbeline and Imogen. After everyone
assembles at court, Iachimo confesses his crime against Posthumus and Imogen, causing
Posthumus to reveal his identity and lament his mistake. Imogen’s identity is then
uncovered, and the two are reunited. Guiderius confesses that he killed Cloten, and in order
to save him from execution, Belarius reveals that his sons are really Cymbeline’s. After all
these reunions, Cymbeline offers to make peace with Rome.

About the Playwright
William Shakespeare
No man’s life has been the subject of more speculation
than William Shakespeare’s. While Shakespearean scholars
have dedicated their lives to the search for evidence, the
truth is that no one really knows what the truth is. Scholars
agree that a William Shakespeare was baptized at Stratfordupon-Avon on April 26, 1564. Tradition holds that he was
born three days earlier, on April 23—the same date on
which, 52 years later, he was recorded to have died. On
November 27, 1582, a marriage license was granted to
18-year-old William and 26-year-old Anne Hathaway. A
daughter, Susanna, was born to the couple six months later.
We know that twins, Hamnet and Judith, were born soon
after and were baptized. What we do not know is how the young Shakespeare came to
travel to London and how he first came to the stage. Whatever the truth may be, it is clear
that in the years between 1582 and 1592 someone calling himself William Shakespeare
became involved in the London theatre scene and was a principal actor with one of several
repertory companies.
By 1592 Shakespeare had become prominent enough as a playwright to engender
professional jealousy. A rival playwright, Robert Greene, wrote snidely of an “upstart crow,
beautified with our feathers, that with his tiger’s heart wrapped in a player’s hide supposes
he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you, and being an absolute
Johannes-factotum is in his own conceit the only Shakescene in a country.” In the years
between 1591 and 1593, the theatres of London were temporarily shut down due to an
outbreak of plague; Shakespeare turned his considerable talents to sonnet writing and
acquired a patron, the young Lord Southampton, to whom two of his poems, Venus and
Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece, are dedicated.
In 1594 Shakespeare was listed as a stockholder in the Lord Chamberlain’s Men; he was a
member of this company for the rest of his career, which lasted until approximately 1611.
When James I came to the throne in 1603, he issued a royal license to Shakespeare and
his fellow players, inviting them to call themselves The King’s Men. The King’s Men leased
the Blackfriar’s Theatre in London in 1608. This theatre, which had artificial lighting and
was probably heated, served as their winter playhouse. The famous Globe Theatre was their
summer performance space.
In the years since Shakespeare’s death, he had fallen to the depths of obscurity only to be
resurrected as the greatest writer of English literature and drama. In the 1800s, his plays
were so popular that many refused to believe that an actor from Stratford had written
them. To this day some believe that Sir Francis Bacon was the real author of the plays;
others argue that Edward DeVere, the Earl of Oxford, was the man. Still others contend
that Sir Walter Raleigh or Christopher Marlowe penned the lines attributed to Shakespeare.
Whether the plays were written by Shakespeare the man or Shakespeare the myth, it is
clear that no other playwright has made such a significant and lasting contribution to the
English language.

Shakespeare Theatre Company
In his 24th season with the Shakespeare Theatre
Company, Artistic Director Michael Kahn, together with
the Company’s artists, staff and Board of Trustees,
continues to fulfill the Company’s ambition to become
the country’s leading force in the presentation and
preservation of classic theatre. The Shakespeare
Theatre Company enjoys national and international
renown as “the nation’s foremost Shakespeare
company” (The Wall Street Journal) producing “a
repertory of classics that no New York theatre of
similar size and scale can match” (The New York
Times). The Company’s noted company of classical
actors regularly includes such distinguished guest
artists as Jane Alexander, Elizabeth Ashley, Avery
Brooks, Kathleen Chalfant, Keith Hamilton Cobb, Keir
Dullea, Jonathan Hadary, Harry Hamlin, Hal Holbrook,
Tom Hulce, Stacy Keach, Sabrina LeBeauf, Jean
LeClerc, Judith Light, Victor Love, Marsha Mason, Kelly
McGillis, Patrick Page, Jean Stapleton, Patrick Stewart,
Richard Thomas, Joan van Ark, Geraint Wyn Davies and
Karen Ziemba.
The 2010-2011 season features three plays by
Shakespeare: All’s Well That Ends Well, Cymbeline and
The Merchant of Venice. In addition, STC is producing
the glittering musical Candide, Harold Pinter’s Old
Times and Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband. This fall
we also enjoy the tremendous versatility of Sidney
Harman Hall, which plays host to a variety of art forms.
VelocityDC—our second annual showcase for dance
–returned in October, along with the second season
of NT Live, a series of performances broadcast in HD
from London’s National Theatre. Live performances
include The Great Game: Afghanistan, one of the most
exciting works of theatre to come out of London in
recent years, and Black Watch.
Shakespeare Theatre Company Free For All
Started in 1991 to engage new and diverse audiences,
the Free For All has presented free Shakespeare to
approximately 575,000 area residents. Its contribution
to the community has been recognized with both The
Washington Post Distinguished Service Award and the
Public Humanities Award from the Humanities Council
of Washington, D.C. The move to Sidney Harman
Hall increased the Metro-accessibility of the event,
prevents weather-related cancellations and allows the
Shakespeare Theatre Company to maintain the artistic
integrity of Free For All productions thanks to the
state-of-the-art capabilities of Sidney Harman Hall. The
change in venues also allows the Company to host a
variety of family-friendly events to coincide with Free
For All performances. For additional information on the
change, please visit
Consistent with the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s
central mission—to be the leading force in producing
and preserving the highest quality classic theatre—
the Education Department is positioned as both a
local and national resource. We strive to deepen the
understanding of, appreciation of and connection
to classic theatre in diverse learners of all ages
through accessible programs that celebrate multiple
perspectives. The education programs of STC challenge
all learners to explore the ideas, emotions and
principles contained in classic texts and to discover the
correlations between classic theatre and our modern
perceptions. We seek to fulfill this mission through
strengthening our collaborations with schools and
other organizations locally and nationally, engaging
in scholarly dialogue with community and audience
members and increasing our use of technology. Text
Alive!, a curriculum enrichment program, works with
public school teachers in D.C., Virginia and Maryland
to make Shakespeare and his works accessible
to young audiences. ShakesPEERS, a community
outreach initiative, provides a nurturing environment
during non-school hours for young people from the
D.C. public schools to explore their creative voices
through a foundation of collaboration, craftsmanship,
citizenship and community. With its broad range
of programs—including Classics in the Classroom,
Students for Shakespeare, Windows, Master Acting
Classes, Professional Internships, SHAKESPEARIENCE,
Re:ACT and Theatre History Initiative—the Company’s
Education Department is an innovative and creative
community resource.

Academy for Classical Acting
Designed for working actors, midstream in their
careers, the Academy for Classical Acting is a one-year
immersion program with an exceptional number of
contact hours between students and professional
faculty. Under the guidance of Michael Kahn and
with an MFA degree accredited through The George
Washington University, the ACA teaches actors how
to integrate the emotional, physical and imaginative
life of a role with the technical skills needed to
express to the fullest Shakespeare’s dramatic texts
as well as many other classical playwrights. During
11 months of intensive study, ACA training includes
voice, speech, acting, text, mask, Alexander Technique,
movement, clown and stage combat. Since 2001, ACA
has graduated more than 100 actors who are now
performing on stages in New York, Washington, D.C.
and across the country.
Annual Support
Donors make a difference. Ticket revenue and other
earned income account for just over 60 percent of
the Company’s $17 million operating budget. It is only
with the ongoing generous support of more than 300
corporations, foundations and public agencies—along
with more than 3,000 individuals—that the Company
can fulfill its mission as the nation’s leading force in
producing and preserving classical theatre.

More than 3,000 individuals, families, businesses, foundations and government agencies contribute to the
Annual Fund. Their generosity provides 36 percent of our operating budget.
The Board of Trustees, artists and staff gratefully acknowledge the special relationship the Shakespeare
Theatre Company donor has with the Company. Because of our donors’ commitment to the beauty
of our language and the common good of our community, magic happens on our stage. They make
possible what is cherished by our 180,000 audience members.
The following list acknowledges gifts received between September 19, 2009, and November 19, 2010.

Ellen O’Brien instructs a voice class.
The Shakespeare Theatre Company in the
nation's capital, in conjunction with The George
Washington University, offers a Master of Fine
Arts degree to develop actors for the classical
theatre. Under the guidance of Michael Kahn,
Artistic Director of the Shakespeare Theatre
Company and one of the country's most
respected acting teachers, the Shakespeare
Theatre Company Academy for Classical Acting
at The George Washington University (ACA)
trains up to 16 students each year. The ACA's
one-year intensive graduate program focuses
on the specific craft of acting Shakespeare and
other classical texts.
Training includes acting, voice and speech—in
particular the challenges of speaking verse—
movement, mask, the Alexander Technique,
text, combat, as well as dramatic literature
and theatre history. Students perform in their
own ACA productions. By training under the
auspices of "the nation's foremost Shakespeare
company" (The Wall Street Journal) and one
of the nation's finest academic institutions,
ACA students receive a unique opportunity
to learn and interact with members of the
Shakespeare Theatre Company's accomplished
classical acting company, as well as nationally
and internationally recognized guest instructors
and distinguished faculty from The George
Washington University. An alternative to
traditional MFA acting programs, the ACA helps
professional actors who want to strengthen
their skills in this specific discipline.
Once you have submitted your online
application form and fee, you will need:
• Current resume & headshot
• Two letters of recommendation
(one professional and one academic)
Copies of:
• Completed and signed application form
• Statement of Purpose/Essay
• Transcript (official or student)
• For the audition, please prepare two
classical, contrasting monologues (from
Shakespeare and in verse) that are 2-3
minutes each in length. Callbacks are held
on the same day as your audition. If you are
called back, you should have 1-2 additional
classical monologues prepared as well as a
contemporary piece. Those present at the
ACA auditions may include Michael Kahn,
Artistic Director of the Shakespeare Theatre
Company; Gary Logan, ACA Director; and
Ellen O'Brien, ACA Voice and Text Instructor.

Since graduation a little over a year ago, I have
