THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

a new adaptation by Keith Drinkel

based on the novel by

OSCAR  WILDE

 

a darkly erotic tale performed by Keith Drinkel

 

and directed by John Jones

 


Dorian Gray is a young man of extraordinary charm and beauty. When his close friend paints his portrait, a series of shocking and supernatural events are set in motion resulting in the destruction of many of the central characters. Wilde explores the idea of sin and redemption in a gripping narrative, which includes his legendary wit and observation. This new version, acclaimed on its premiere at the Attic Theatre in Wimbledon, lays emphasis on parallels with Wilde's own life and the 'hidden sexuality' which caused such a scandal on its publication.
