CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
The chilling Gothic tale of Dorian Gray, who remains physically unchanged when he discovers the power of his own exceptional beauty and his downfall within the glamorous world of self-luxury and corrupt lifestyle. But hidden away in his attic, his portrait tells a different story... Victorian London. Away from the opera houses, the salons and the gentlemen's clubs; there lies a darker, murkier underbelly: tawdry theatres, burlesque bars, cabaret clubs and opium dens. Dorian Gray descends into the depths of this secret underworld on his quest to seek the "ultimate sensation". But at what cost? Ruby in the Dust present Oscar Wilde's only novel in a brave new theatrical format of glamour, music, decadence and drama.
