Hedda Gabler: Tears and scheming from Sheridan in the so called female "Hamlet" role
Sumptuous trip hazards and cheekiness: The Judas Kiss @HampsTheatre

Is this going to be the best week of theatre of 2012, so far?

Such a trio of potential delights lined up for this coming week that it could be the best week of the year, so far.

First of all I'm stupidly excited about The Judas Kiss tomorrow night at the Hampstead Theatre. It stars Rupert Everett who is someone I never thought I'd get a chance to see on stage and the lovely Freddie Fox who has proved a delight in the last two plays I've seen him in. The story of Oscar Wilde and his young lover Bosie is a familiar one but curious to see what David Hare's spin on it was.

Then on Tuesday there is Three Sisters at the Young Vic. Have a love/hate relationship with Chekhov but this is one of his plays I've never seen before and with Mariah Gale and Sam Troughton among the cast I'm hopeful it will fall in the former category. The trailer is intrigue at least (follow link above).

Finishing off the trio, on Thursday I'm off to see I Am Camera in the tiny Vault space at the Southwark Playhouse with Stan fav Harry Melling. Have loved everything I've seen him do on stage, most recently in When Did You Last See My Mother last year at the Trafalgar Studios which I gave five stars to. It's based on a Christopher Isherwood memoir. *rubs hands together with glee*

The autumn theatre season kicked off in great style with Hedda last week, lets hope it continues.
