Rupert Everett's acclaimed performance as Oscar Wilde is to transfer to the West End.

The actor has had a sell-out run with his starring role as the writer and wit in The Judas Kiss at north London's Hampstead Theatre.

Now the production has secured a further run at the Duke Of York's Theatre, opening on January 17.

The play, by David Hare, also stars Freddie Fox as Lord Alfred Douglas and the rest of the Hampstead cast are to continue in their roles when the production transfers.

The Judas Kiss examines Wilde's relationship with his lover Lord Alfred, known as Bosie, focusing on two key moments in his life - the eve of his gross indecency arrest at a Knightsbridge hotel, and a night in Naples following his imprisonment in Reading Jail.
