The Georgian Theatre Royal Youth Theatre Dorian Gray



Captivated by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray trades his soul for eternal youth and beauty. He is drawn into a corrupt double life that is poisoned by hedonism and depravity. Only the portrait tells the sinister truth, which is masterfully disclosed in the final scenes. Set in the roaring 20s, this bold new production is based on Oscar Wilde’s scandalous novel that shocked early readers with its hints at unspeakable sins. This brilliant exposé of a society caught in a sinister web of vanity and self-obsession has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.
