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.

Starring Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk, Black Mirror) as Dorian Gray - this new production promises to be thought-provoking, dark and dazzling, taking online theatre to the next level.

From the team behind the New York Times Critic’s Pick, ★★★★★ “game-changer” (Telegraph) online production of What a Carve Up! comes a brand-new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s dazzling novel.

Joining previously announced Fionn Whitehead in the title role, will be Alfred Enoch as Harry Wooton, Joanna Lumley as Lady Narborough, Emma McDonald as Sibyl Vane, and Russell Tovey as Basil Hallward, with Stephen Fry as the Interviewer.
