The Picture of Dorian Gray

The opulent and groundbreaking productions of director Kip Williams have been front and centre at the Helpmann Awards for several years, and Eryn Jean Norvill has been hailed as one of the best and most talked about actors of her generation.

For the first time on an Adelaide stage, you can savour the work of both at their virtuosic best in this remarkable stage adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic, which had Sydney critics scrambling for superlatives and audiences leaping from their seats.

This re-imagining of The Picture of Dorian Gray is a lush period drama in knowing conversation with the here and now. Williams’ audacious use of live and pre-recorded video allows Norvill to play all 26 characters simultaneously: it’s theatrically alive and loaded with zeitgeist resonance. Wilde’s study of the corrupting effects of obsessive self-regard and the relationship between worth and appearance leaps across the century to speak straight to us today.

Williams and Norvill’s long-standing collaborative relationship, amplified by some of our finest designers and technicians, finds perfect expression in this brilliantly inventive show that will simply take your breath away. An Australian landmark, not to be missed.
