The Picture of Dorian Gray – online

This March a contemporary digital adaptation of the Oscar Wilde classic, The Picture of Dorian Gray, will be available for audiences to watch at home.
Written by Henry Filloux-Bennett and directed by Tamara Harvey, we understand that the adaptation is set to expand the theatrical form – using elements found in radio plays, films, documentaries alongside traditional theatrical techniques.

In a profile pic-obsessed, a filter-fixated world where online and reality blur, influencer Dorian Gray makes a deal. For his social star never to fade. For the perfect self, he broadcasts to the world to always remain. But as his mental health starts to decline, as corruption and murderous depravity start to creep into his world, the true and horrific cost of his deal will soon need to be met.

Director Tamara Harvey said of the casting: “When trying to tell stories in Covid times, with very few resources and almost no time, the thing you need from your cast more even than talent is a spirit of collaboration, combined with patience, kindness and large doses of humour. Every member of our cast for Dorian Gray brought that and more. They are not only ridiculously talented but also – perhaps even more importantly – they’re all genuinely lovely people, which has made the making of this piece a joy.”
