The Judas Kiss
- Duke of York's Theatre
The Judas Kiss on Duke of York's Theatre in London with Rupert Everett. Tickets to The Judas Kiss in London can be booked here!
It is 1895 and Oscar Wilde's masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest, is playing in the West End after a triumphant premiere, but already the wheels are in motion which will lead to his imprisonment, downfall and vilification. Forced to make a choice between his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, and his freedom, the ever romantic Wilde embarks on a course towards self-destruction.
Directed by Neil Armfield, The Judas Kiss is a fascinating insight into Oscar Wilde's relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas. David Hare's play focuses on two critical moments in Wilde's last years, the evening of his arrest at the Cadogan Hotel and a night in Naples after his release from two years imprisonment.
The Judas Kiss speculates on the consequences of his self destructive fatalism, betrayal and love without trust.
