About the show

The Onomatopoeia Theatre Company presents an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's famous novel, about a man who does not age.  More…

Innocent young Dorian Gray has his portrait painted by his close friend, Basil Hallward. Dorian also meets Basil’s friend, Lord Henry Wotton, who introduces him to London's social circuit and a decadent world of self-indulgence. While Dorian's appearance remains youthful, he eventually discovers that his portrait ages, reflecting his sinful ways and growing uglier with each offense. Dorian then keeps the portrait safely hidden in his attic, but his mysterious behavior and ageless appearance begin to attract suspicion.
