|Mtworks' The Picture Of Dorian Gray
| Open: 03/27/13 Close: 04/14/13 - The WorkShop Theater
The Picture of Dorian Gray is transformed into an erotic cautionary thriller in Glory Kadigan's new adaptation of Oscar Wilde's infamous novel.
The young Dorian's innocence and beauty are remarkably captured in painter Basil Hallward's latest masterpiece. Basil's friend Lord Henry Wotton and Dorian are stunned by the painting displayed before them. When Lord Henry points out the painting's beauty will never fade yet the young man's will, Dorian makes a deadly wish: that the painting grow old in his place while he remains forever young. His wish is granted. Set in the late 1800’s, this classic Gothic tale explores the superficial nature of society, and the value of youth and beauty.
For Mature Audiences Only. Adult Situations/Nudity.
