DORIANChoose Dates & Book
Written by Phoebe Eclair-Powell and Owen Horsley
Direction Owen Horsley
A World Premiere Adaption of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.
The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.
Dorian Gray sells his soul for eternal beauty. Basil and Henry join him for the ride until it all gets a bit much, and the hangovers make way for murder…
DORIAN follows one man’s descent from beautiful debauchery to epic chaos. But who decides when the party is over?
From the deliciously deviant mind of Oscar Wilde, adapted by Bruntwood Prize winner Phoebe Eclair-Powell and RSC Associate Director Owen Horsley, this powerful production explores the events that brought Wilde to Reading Gaol.
Full casting to be announced soon.
Recommended for ages 12+.
This production will be accompanied by participation project Made in Reading that explores Reading’s LGBTQIA+ history and Wilde’s imprisonment in Reading Gaol.
Reading Rep Theatre’s season is sponsored by Muse Creative Communications
