European Arts Company present The Picture of Dorian Gray
Adapted by Oscar Wilde’s grandson Merlin Holland and John O’Connor. Directed by Peter Craze.
Fresh from a West End run of The Trials of Oscar Wilde, European Arts Company returns with a thrilling adaptation of Wilde’s only novel The Picture of Dorian Gray to celebrate the 125th anniversary of its publication.
Set in the decadent world of Victorian London, a beautiful, narcissistic young man called Dorian Gray becomes infatuated by the exquisite portrait that Basil Hallward has painted of him. He makes a Faustian pact that he will remain forever young while the picture grows old.
Combining drawing room comedy and Gothic horror, this is a gripping and hugely entertaining theatrical event.
The production features a talented cast familiar from stage and screen including:
– Gwynfor Jones who has come straight from the West End production of ‘The Woman in Black’ and
– Guy Warren-Thomas as Dorian Gray (Spooks, Downton Abbey).
