    An Ideal Husband

    Theatre
    Time
    8:00pm
    Location
    Arena Theatre, Moravian College
    Presented by Moravian College Theatre Company

    Directed by Kayli Silimperi
    Part of the Friday Night Play Reading Series

    Have you been rolling your eyes a lot this election season? We present a classic political satire with wittier banter than you are likely to see in any of our presidential debates.  When a politician is blackmailed, his wife goes to ridiculous lengths to save her husband’s reputation and political career. This may be a 19th century classic, but corruption and scandal never go out of style!

    Venue:  THE ARENA THEATRE, located on Moravian College’s North campus (1200 Main Street, Bethlehem, PA) on the lower level of the Haupert Union Building, at the corner of Laurel and Monocacy Streets.
