Vanity, beauty, nihilism and sensuality collide with cutting edge tech. Oscar Wilde’s gothic classic, reimagined for the 21st Century.
The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray is an odyssey of theatrical storytelling featuring an awe-inspiring performance from Eryn Jean Norvill.

Building on a career-long fascination with theatrical innovation, and stunning reinventions of classic stories, Sydney Theatre Company Artistic Director Kip Williams has written and directed an adaption of Oscar Wilde’s Gothic classic—a fable of beauty and a deal with the devil that mirrors our present moment. Williams returns with long-time collaborator Norvill, and a team of some of Australia’s finest theatre-makers, for the production’s Melbourne debut at RISING.

This one-person show is an Olympic act of performance: a sole performer nimbly shapeshifting to play all of the dark tale’s 26 characters in a cascade of theatrical transformations. Mixing singular contemporary theatre design, lush period drama, and astonishing live video, Williams’ contemporary adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray is gripping, funny and audacious.

“[A] dizzyingly beautiful tour de force.”

— Guardian Australia

“Norvill produces some of the most virtuosic theatre I have ever witnessed, on stage or screen ... A performance that will surely be remembered as one of the greatest ever seen on an Australian stage.”
