A Picture of Dorian Gray

Based on the novella by Oscar Wilde

Adapted and Directed by Michael Michetti

Entranced by the beauty of his own portrait, Dorian Gray sells his soul to preserve his youth and pays a price. This haunting and seductive adaptation lets Wilde’s language and wit sparkle, but strips bare the themes of hedonism and the insatiable pursuit of pleasure. As Gray descends into self-indulgent debauchery, those around him are drawn to their own ruin like moths to a flame.

Please note that the performance on November 2nd at 8pm will be an ASL interpreted show.

Running Time: 2 hours and 35 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission. Late seating at House Manager’s discretion.

Please note this performance will use a water-based hazer, herbal and e-cigarettes, and an electronic vapor pipe. There will also be light flashes and loud sudden noises.

Content Advisory: Contains nudity and suggestive material. Recommended for mature audiences ages 15 and up. Student matinee performances will adjust the suggestive material and be performed without nudity.
