The Picture of Dorian Gray
Sydney Theatre Company presents
The Picture of Dorian Gray

5 Jun 2022 to 7 Aug 2022

A breathtaking reimagining of a Wilde classic

Hailed as a dizzyingly beautiful tour de force (The Guardian) and a theatrical coup to rival the best of Robert Lepage or Complicite (Sydney Morning Herald), The Picture of Dorian Gray is a monumental work of Australian theatre and an odyssey of theatrical storytelling, featuring an awe-inspiring performance from Eryn Jean Norvill that is out of this world (Time Out).

Building on a career-long fascination with theatrical innovation and spectacular reinventions of classic stories (Suddenly Last Summer, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui), STC Artistic Director Kip Williams has written an adaption of Wildes century-old fable of beauty and a deal with the devil that is a magnificent mirror to our times. Now Williams returns with long-time collaborator Norvill and a team of some of Australias finest theatre-makers, to reconjure a production that will surely be remembered as one of the greatest ever seen on an Australian stage (Time Out).

This one-person show sees Norvill in an Olympic act of performance: nimbly shapeshifting to play all of the dark tales 26 characters in an audacious cascade of theatrical transformations. A scintillating mix of cutting-edge contemporary theatre design, lush period drama, and astonishing live video, this vibrantly contemporary adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray is gripping, funny and has rightfully been celebrated as genius (Limelight).
