Rupert Everett plays Oscar Wilde in The Judas Kiss at the Duke of York's Theatre - a compelling drama about the power of all-consuming love and the cruelty of betrayal.

The Judas Kiss starts in 1895 as 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… With a quiet but burning sense of outrage, The Judas Kiss presents the consequences of taking an uncompromisingly moral position in a world defined by fear, expedience and conformity.
