The Picture of Dorian Gray

Date: 30 Oct 2020

Seeing himself in a dazzling new portrait, an exquisite young man makes a Faustian wish for eternal youth.

Dorian Gray throws himself into a life of wanton luxury drifting from the pampered salons of Victorian London to the darkest recesses of the capital, and revelling in the splendour of his beauty which remains forever golden. Meanwhile, the portrait – banished to an attic – becomes more and more grotesque.

This world premiere production of Oscar Wilde’s century-old moral fable, adapted and directed by Artistic Director Kip Williams, sees Eryn Jean Norvill perform every role in the story in an audacious cascade of theatrical transformations. The inventive use of live video that made Suddenly Last Summer and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui so visually compelling will capture and amplify every move.
