Handsome young Dorian Gray falls under the spell of Henry Wotton – a sophisticated, amoral aristocrat, who leads him into a life of decadence and sin. When Dorian catches sight of his new portrait, he makes a wish: if only he could stay young, while the portrait grows old…

As the portrait in the attic begins to age, how long can Dorian keep his secrets? This vivid and exciting new adaptation combines Oscar Wilde’s glittering wit with the pulse-raising pace of a thriller.

The cast switch roles at different performances, giving you a choice of four versions. How does the story feel different with a male or a female Dorian Gray? Pick the version you want, or see it twice with ‘A Second Look’!
