The Sydney University Dramatic Society Presents: Dorian
“…Marvellously young and marvellously beautiful. Youth and beauty are the only things worth having in this world…”
Inspired by the words of a new acquaintance, the young Dorian Gray gazes upon his freshly-painted portrait and wishes that the image might grow old while he might remain young. To the detriment of all around him, his wish is granted.
A new adaptation of Oscar Wilde's ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Nadia Bracegirdle, 'Dorian' explores obsession, love, vice, and what it means to place aesthetic ideals above all else. In this decadent and carefree world is an underbelly of shame, fear, blackmail, and violence, which begs the question: how far are we willing to go to maintain our ideals?
