Pregnant Fish Theatre are proud to present The Picture of Dorian Gray: a New Adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s iconic novel at The Space this Spring. Coinciding with the book’s 125th anniversary, the company’s unique, intimate take sees Wilde’s gothic horror interwoven with live music and stylised movement.
Adapted and directed by Tom Drayton, The Picture of Dorian Gray explores the boundaries between art and reality and sees the young, London based company depict the beautiful and the demonic side by side.
When the remarkably handsome Dorian Gray comes to London he is the name on everyone’s lips. In a distorted, demonic city of sordid sinners, his looks can get him anywhere. But then the boundaries between art and life start to merge. As Dorian’s infamy grows, a trail of sorrow lies in his wake. There’s a secret hidden in Dorian’s attic, and a horrible truth behind the perfect boy’s face.
‘Intricate characters and an excellent atmosphere created by a dedicated cast and creative team… Sultry and cynical… An exciting, fresh look at a classic tale‘ – everything theatre
‘precisely what theatre should try to be.’ – Christopher Fear
