adapted by Becca and Jason Johnson-Spinos
from the novel by Oscar Wilde
A brand new vision of Oscar Wilde's Faustian tale of a beautiful young man who sells his soul to obtain eternal youth. In Victorian London, the young painter Basil Hallward has just completed his best work yet - a beautiful portrait of his young and naive friend, Dorian Gray. Their mutual friend Henry Wotton remarks what a singularly brilliant piece of art it is, and how Basil must exhibit it. Dorian then makes a fateful wish - that the painting should grow old instead of him - and strikes an unbreakable bond with the devil. Dorian's pact sends him down a path towards depravity and darkness. However, with each misstep Dorian makes - his vile acts are not etched upon his own face, but rather upon the portrait, which seems to reflect from within every single one of Dorian's sins. The portrait is Dorian's greatest secret, and he will do anything to keep that secret safe.
