Based on the original philosophical novel by Oscar Wilde, and now adapted for the stage by Neil Bartlett.

As London slides from one century into the next, a young man is cursed with the uncanny ability to remain both young and beautiful while descending into a life of heartless debauchery.
With its glittering dialogue, provocative imagery and radical questioning of sexual and moral freedoms, Oscar Wilde's infamous parable has lost none of its power to provoke and disturb.

‘Bartlett’s new adaptation… is refreshingly and illuminatingly unconventional.’ – Irish Times
‘Arresting adaptation…It glitters artfully; it leaves us desolate.’ – Guardian
‘It is a long time since Dublin was shocked by Oscar Wilde, but Neil Bartlett's adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray does something to recall the tremors…. Bartlett's real gift is to capture the lethal surprise of Wilde's only novel.’ – Observer
‘MESMERIC… a creative coup that still remains faithful to Oscar's floridly perfect novel.’ – Irish Independent
