Rupert Everett and Freddie Fox reprise their roles in the West End transfer of David Hare’s The Judas Kiss, a powerful play about Oscar Wilde’s fall from grace.

Transferring to the West End following its run at the Hampstead theatre, The Judas Kiss focuses on two critical moments in the writer’s life – the eve of his arrest and one night after his release from two years imprisonment – offering an insight into Wilde’s relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas and speculating on the consequences of the Irish author’s self-destructive fatalism, betrayal and love without trust.

Neil Armfield directs Everett and Fox in the production. Everett is best known for his film roles in screen adaptations of Wilde’s The Importance Of Being Earnest and An Ideal Husband, while Fox, who was most recently seen on stage in Hay Fever at the Noël Coward theatre, has also appeared at the Old Vic theatre in A Flea In Her Ear and Cause Célèbre.

They are joined in the cast by original cast members Cal Macaninch, Ben Hardy, Kirsty Oswald, Alister Cameron and Tom Colley.

Hare’s most recent stage play South Downs recently played alongside Terence Rattigan’s The Browning Version at the Harold Pinter theatre.
