         THE JUDAS KISS
Directed by Artistic Director
Jim Schneider



Act One captures him in 1895 on the eve of his arrest.  He still has the chance to flee to the continent but chooses to let the train leave without him.  In the second act, Wilde is in Naples more than two years later, after his release from Reading Gaol.  In exile, he is drawn to a reunion with his unworthy lover and the man who brings him down, Lord Alfred Douglas and a final betrayal with the Judas Kiss."...what Hare has done in this play is not to write a narrative but to offer a portrait of Oscar at the end of his once glittering tether...What Hare has achieved masterfully are two companion vignettes pinpointing and highlighting the fall of Wilde...a mood portrait of a fall from grace."-The New York Post
