The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray

A brand-new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s dazzling novel

The critically acclaimed digital adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray will extend for two weeks! Now completing its run on the 17th April.



Each of us has heaven and hell in them.

In a profile pic-obsessed, filter-fixated world where online and reality blur, influencer Dorian Gray makes a deal. For his social star never to fade. For the perfect self he broadcasts to the world to always remain. But as his mental health starts to decline, as corruption and murderous depravity start to creep into his world, the true and horrific cost of his deal will soon need to be met.
