The Picture of Dorian Gray Overview
European Arts Company returns with a brand new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray written with his grandson Merlin Holland. Following on from the success of last year’s The Trials of Oscar Wilde the play is timed to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the publication of Wilde’s only novel in 1891. Set in the decadent world of Victorian London, a beautiful 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.
'Deserves to be seen for the fresh insights it brings to a work we think we know all too well, and for what it tells us of Wilde.'
'Guy Warren-Thomas is a fine Dorian Gray. A highly entertaining mix of Wilde’s razor-sharp wit and Victorian melodrama.’
'A cracking, irresistibly watchable cast of just 4 bring this Gothic horror story to life. Classic storytelling, a small masterpiece.'
'This is a truly lovely production, a classic story well executed. The performances are certainly the highlight, as is the fact that Wilde’s grandson aided in the creation.’

Minimalistic rendition of Wilde's mystical novel was a delight. The essence of Victorian paradoxes was delivered aptly by versatile cast.
Isabelle Van De Werve1st February
The character of Dorian was disappointing, was not as Oscar Wild describe him. Dorian in the play is way too obvious he is gay, in the novel it isn't obvious .

Very well performed in a cosy theatre. Great fun.
