Rupert Everett to star in ‘Judas Kiss’

Two plays to world preem at Hampstead

LONDON — Two world premieres and a revival of David Hare’s “The Judas Kiss,” starring Rupert Everett as Oscar Wilde, complete the autumn slate at Hampstead Theater.

National Theater associate Howard Davies helms the world premiere of “55 Days” a Hampstead Theater commission from Howard Brenton. The play, set in the mid-17th century, examines the most turbulent period in English history when Oliver Cromwell and his supporters led the country to civil war, and the execution of the monarch, King Charles I. Casting has yet to be announced for the production that runs Oct. 18-Nov. 24 with an Oct. 24 opening.

Maureen Lipman and Tracy-Ann Oberman will star as mother and daughter in the world premiere of “Old Money,” a comedy by young scribe Sarah Wooley about a woman who breaks free after 30 years of marriage. Robin Lefevre helms the production, which runs Nov. 29-Jan. 12, 2013 with a Dec. 5 opening.

First produced in 1998 by Robert Fox and Scott Rudin, David Hare’s “The Judas Kiss” examines the relationship between Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas that led to Wilde’s downfall. Everett plays the role created by Liam Neeson, with Freddie Fox, nephew of Robert, as Bosie. Helmed by Neil Armfield, the first major revival is designed by Dale Ferguson, lit by Rick Fisher and runs Sept. 6-Oct. 13 with a Sept. 12 opening.
