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.

Praise for Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray:
'A remarkable work of imagination... wonderfully entertaining.'
