THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

Friday, August 7 at 7:30pm to 9:45pm

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

by Oscar Wilde

world premiere

adapted by Shirley Kagan and Billy Christopher Maupin

directed by Shirley Kagan

performed by Billy Christopher Maupin

June 18 - Aug 7, 2020

​THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY features a slightly reduced version of the full text of Wilde's 1891 Gothic tale of desire, mortality, and ephemerality that will be performed by a single actor -- Billy Christopher Maupin.

In DORIAN GRAY Wilde weaves a Faustian story around a beautiful young man who gives up his soul so he can remain beautiful and young forever. Wilde uses narrative and dialogue to critique conventional customs and declare his views on the tensions between morality and art, utility and pleasure, outer and inner, and good and evil.

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY is the first production in Firehouse's 2020-2021 SEASON OF DISCOVERY and will have reduced audience capacity due to COVID-19. Performances will be limited to between 2 and 6 seats. Firehouse will maintain and enforce CDC recommended guidelines for contactless/physically distant performances. Select performances will also be live-streamed.
