The Picture of Dorian Gray

Tuesday 21st April 7.30pm
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).

“Utterly compelling and heart-rending, brilliant ensemble acting, GO!”  Stephen Fry on The Trials of Oscar Wilde

“This is a small but brilliant company”  Gyles Brandreth
