Synopsis


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.
