The Judas Kiss: A Play - David Hare

David Hare’s The Judas Kiss takes place immediately before and after Oscar Wilde’s arrest and prison sentence for his illicit affair with Lord Alfred Douglas. Hare’s Wilde is a charming martyr, refusing to play the game, while Douglas is a selfish beauty wanting love but refusing to pay its price. The Judas Kiss beautifully conveys how love can blind us to the judgements of others, but also to our own destruction.
