The Picture of Dorian Gray
By Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Based on the Novel by Oscar Wilde
Presented by Shakespeare Carolina
Directed by David Hensley

In this modernized adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic, The Picture of Dorian Gray, playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa presents us with young Dorian Gray (Kevin Aoussou) in 1980’s London. Dorian’s Faustian deal to trade his soul for his painting’s immortality leads to his downfall as he embraces a life of depravity, allowing the portrait to bear the ravages of his deeds. From 80s London to present-day America, Dorian is forced to watch his corruption infect his friends and loved ones as they continue to grow older and he stays young and naïve, haunted by a lost love.

The Picture of Dorian Gray will be directed by David Hensley, a 2008 graduate of Winthrop University. Hensley is the creative director of Long Walk Productions and serves on the board of advisors for Shakespeare Carolina. 

Shakespeare Carolina has been producing plays in North and South Carolina since the late 1990’s.  Recent performances have been at both the outdoor amphitheater and Johnson Theater at Winthrop University; the Duke Energy Theater at Spirit Square; the Charlotte Fringe Festival; and on tour.
