Judas Kiss – February 2006

By David Hare

Directed by James Hough Neilson

The Judas Kiss is a dramatized biography of Oscar Wilde, in which playwright David Hare presents his interpretation of what may have happened behind closed doors between Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas.
The Judas Kiss revisits this tale of deception, in which a man who had everything, risked it all, and subsequently lost everything when his lover betrayed him. This Tony nominated work (1998) establishes the consequences of taking a moral stand in a world wrapped in fear and prejudice.

Dinner – June 2006

By Moira Buffini

Directed by Dean Schulze

At first glance, "Dinner" sounds like one of those old-fashioned English mysteries - an isolated house on a foggy night, a tense gathering of distinctive personalities, a unexpected visitor with car trouble. But it has closer affinities with "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe" despite the fact that the ostensible occasion of the dinner is the celebration by his wife Paige of Lars' latest best-selling book, it is soon clear that the pair have long since fallen into a poisonous relationship characterized by barbed exchanges. The other guests include Wynne, the flaky artist who has turned up without her politician husband after a falling out, and scientist Hal with his new trophy wife, newsreader Sian.
