The Rolls-Royce of English comedies, this entertaining and still topical play brings an act of political sin into the heart of the English home. As an ambitious government minister, Sir Robert Chiltern’s smooth ascent to the top seems assured, until Mrs Cheveley appears in London with damning proof of a previous financial scandal.
