Two week extension for digital production of The Picture of Dorian Gray

The critically acclaimed adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic novel has been extended to 17 April.

We are one of a select number of partner venues to present a brand new digital production of The Picture of Dorian Gray.

The co-producers of the critically acclaimed digital adaptation have today announced that it will extend for two weeks only, now completing its run on Saturday 17 April.

Theatr Clwyd’s Artistic Director Tamara Harvey directs Henry Filloux-Bennetts adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic novel in this co-production with Barn Theatre, Lawrence Batley Theatre Huddersfield, Oxford Playhouse and the New Wolsey Theatre.

The Picture of Dorian Gray, which received the prestigious New York Times Critic’s Pick, utilises elements found in radio plays, films, documentaries as well as traditional theatrical techniques.

The production sees Fionn Whitehead, in the title role and he is joined by Alfred Enoch as Harry Wotton, Joanna Lumley as Lady Narborough, Emma McDonald as Sibyl Vane, Russell Tovey as Basil Hallward and with Stephen Fry as the Interviewer.

From the creative team behind the critically acclaimed What a Carve Up!, the beloved Faustian tale by Oscar Wilde is brought kicking and screaming into a world of Instagram, Facebook and dating apps. Set in a profile pic-obsessed, filter-fixated world, the contemporary take follows influencer Dorian Gray as he makes a deal for his social star never to fade.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is on now until 17 April
