|The Picture of Dorian Gray|
Decadent Victorian London: The socialite Lord Henry seduces the beautifully boyish Dorian Gray, into a double life of pleasure, murder and excess. Unlike Lord Henry, Dorian never ages - only Basil Hallward's picture portrays his decline into sin and ultimate self-destruction.
Indulge in a delicious dinner and Wildean wit, when the text of this Gothic masterpiece is narrated and staged for you by Basil, Lord Henry and Dorian - actors Michael James Ford, Simon Coury and Michael Winder - and directed and adapted by Alice Coghlan.
