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 stardom 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.
From the team behind the New York Times Critic’s Pick, five star “game-changer” (The Telegraph) online production of What a Carve Up! comes a brand-new adaptation that brings Oscar Wilde’s Faustian tale kicking and screaming into a world of Instagram, Facebook and dating apps.
The show will run online from Tue 16 – Wed 31 March and is on sale now. All performances will be captioned and Audio Description will be available on all shows from Tue 23 Mar.
