This theatrical adaptation of Wild’s classic novel has already played to great acclaim countrywide.The story is set in the decadent world of Victorian London, where the socialite Lord Henry Wootton seduces the beautifully boyish Dorian Gray into a hedonistic life of indulgence, vice and dissipation. Infatuated by Basil Hallward’s portrait, Dorian makes a Faustian pact that he will remain forever young while the picture charts his decline into sin and ultimate self-destruction.
The Picture Of Dorian Gray moves from drawing room comedy to Gothic horror and is compelling and a hugely entertaining theatrical event. It is directed by Alice Coghlan whose previous credits for Wonderland Productions include Il Pagliacci, La Locandiera and Life Shop Till You Drop, and it features Gate Theatre regulars Michael James Ford and Michael Winder, alongside Simon Coury, a veteran of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
