In the fall of 2014, the University of Washington Undergraduate Theater Society (UTS) ran a production of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, adapted by Neil Bartlett and directed by Rachel Perlot. This was the cast.
In turn-of-the-century London, artist Basil Hallward paints a portrait of Dorian Gray, an impossibly attractive young man. When Dorian unknowingly trades his soul for permanent youth and beauty, he sinks into a life of darkness and debauchery, corrupting all who fall for his charms. Neil Bartlett takes Wilde's classic story to the stage in a haunting new adaptation that explores the thin line between perception and reality.
