The Picture of Dorian Gray

21 Jul — 15 Aug 2020

Roslyn Packer Theatre

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

By Oscar Wilde
Adapted and directed by Kip Williams

World premiere

A classic story gets a Wilde twist

Oscar Wilde’s century-old moral fable, packed with witticisms, is as devilishly wicked today as on its debut.

Seeing himself in a dazzling new portrait, an exquisite young man makes a Faustian wish for eternal youth. Dorian Gray throws himself into a life of wanton luxury drifting from the pampered salons of Victorian London to the darkest recesses of the capital, and revelling in the splendour of his beauty which remains forever golden. Meanwhile, the portrait – banished to an attic – becomes more and more grotesque.

This new interpretation of Wilde’s only novel is adapted and directed by Artistic Director Kip Williams. Collaborating once again with Eryn Jean Norvill (Suddenly Last Summer, Romeo and Juliet), Williams’ reimagining will see Norvill performing every role in the story in an audacious cascade of theatrical transformations. The inventive use of live video that made Suddenly Last Summer and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui so visually compelling will capture and amplify every move.

“The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.”  Lord Henry
