About the Show/Event
Information for Pictures of Dorian Gray at Jermyn Street Theatre, Inner London (Play). 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-si?cle 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. Choose your picture of Dorian Gray: A. Male Dorian with male Wotton 5, 10, 13, 19, 22, 25, 29 (mat) June; 2 (mat), 5 July. B.
