Michaelmas Week 1
Ensnared by the power of his own beauty, Dorian gradually sinks deep into a world of selfish pleasure; unchanged by his sins, untouched by age and uncaring of the tragedy he leaves in his wake. But up in his attic, hidden behind a curtain, the portrait painted by a young lover tells a different story…
‘I am jealous of everything whose beauty does not die. I am jealous of that portrait. Why should it keep what I must lose?’
Written by Oscar Wilde and adapted by John Osborne, this twisted and darkly funny play tells the story of a young man who sold his soul for his youth and beauty, only to discover the price may be too high.
