About This Show

Oscar Wilde’s only novel ranks with Frankenstein and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as a defining excursion into psychological horror. Dorian Gray expresses the desire that his newly painted portrait, rather than he, will age and fade. This idle, destructive wish is granted: Dorian stays young and beautiful while his portrait ages and takes on the weight of his sins. He is both fascinated and trapped by this fatal freedom from responsibility and enters into a life of hedonism. Three-time Jeff Award winner for Best Adaptation Paul Edwards returns to City Lit for his eighth production.
