      Chichester Festival Theatre in association with Robert Fox, Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Hampstead Theatre Productions present the Hampstead Theatre Production of The Judas Kiss.

      Rupert Everett
      plays Oscar Wilde in David Hare’s The Judas Kiss —a compelling drama about the power of all consuming love and the cruelty of betrayal. 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, this critically acclaimed production arrives in Toronto after a sold-out run in London’s West End.

      "RUPERT EVERETT is WONDROUS as Oscar Wilde
      —A RICH AND REVEALING PERFORMANCE!

      An emotionally rich drama illuminated by David Hare’s insight and humanity.
      Director Neil Armfield's elegant production… STUNNING!"

      Martin Morrow, The Globe & Mail

      "RUPERT EVERETT
      KEEPS THE AUDIENCE RIVETED!

      A performance that demands to be seen."

      Karen Fricker, Toronto Star

      "ASTONISHING! FABULOUS! ENGAGING!
      A SPECIAL MAGIC CREATED IS FROM RUPERT EVERETT’S PERFORMANCE AND DAVID HARE’S WORDS.
      The rapier wit is often laugh-out-loud funny."

      Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
