The Picture of Dorian GrayStarring Fionn Whitehead
Each of us has heaven and hell in them.
In a profile pic-obsessed, filter-fixated world where online and reality blur, influencer Dorian Gray makes a deal. For his social star never to fade. For the perfect self he broadcasts to the world to always remain. But as his mental health starts to decline, as corruption and murderous depravity start to creep into his world, the true and horrific cost of his deal will soon need to be met.
From the team behind the New York Times Critic’s Pick, the ★★★★★ “game-changer” (Telegraph) online production of What a Carve Up!, and starring Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, Bandersnatch), this is a brand-new adaptation that brings Oscar Wilde’s Faustian tale kicking and screaming into a world of Instagram, Facebook and dating apps.
Co-produced by The Barn Theatre, Lawrence Batley Theatre, New Wolsey Theatre, Oxford Playhouse & Theatr Clwyd. Co-presented by a number of partner theatres including Bristol Old Vic.
