CLASSIC WILDE

PICTURES OF DORIAN GRAY

By Oscar Wilde, newly adapted by Lucy Shaw

Directed by Tom Littler
Set and lighting designed by William Reynolds

In association with Stephen Joseph Theatre

In Oscar Wilde’s iconic novel, sophisticated, amoral aristocrat Henry Wotton seduces the beautiful Dorian Gray into a life of sin and hedonism in fin-de-siècle London. Dorian sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty – and only his portrait seems to age. But will Dorian’s pact have a price?

Lucy Shaw’s bold and beautiful new adaptation retains all the glittering wit of Wilde’s writing. The cast switch roles, creating four different casting possibilities, performed on different nights. A female Dorian looks at the portrait. And a male face looks back at her.
