‘THE JUDAS KISS’; Hare’s bio-tale about Oscar Wilde Reply

Review by Judith RobinsonreviewerJudith Robinson
         David Hare is the finest, British, living playwright. And his play, The Judas Kiss, playing at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto, is perhaps his best. In tracing the story of Oscar Wilde’s betrayal by his young lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, Hare succeeds, not only in skillfully telling a true tale of passionate intrigue, but in touching the soul of what it means to love.
The agony which Wilde, masterfully played by Rupert Everett, goes through, is something most of us can identify with: wondering what a loved one wants and figuring out how to please them;    photo by Cylla von Tiedemann
