Dorian is a striking new musical theatre that skilfully explores the dark side of eternal youth with a modern twist. A thoroughly 21st-century queering of the Victorian classic that incorporates rock music and social media while remaining true to the original’s bohemian thrill. 
This modern fairy tale follows Dorian Gray, a wannabe rockstar with grandiose dreams who strikes a dangerous bargain to achieve success. Inspired by the classic Oscar Wilde novel, this musical retelling explores the heartache as Dorian faces the prospect of eternal glory, which opens a Pandora’s Box of love, lust, and corruption. This show gives the Gothic story a glam-rock twist as the young musician is pulled in every direction by his fans, record producers, and photographers – slowly warping his impressionable mind.

Dorian: The Musical runs from 4 July to 10 August 2024, at Southwark Playhouse Borough, 77-85 Newington Causeway, London SE1 6BD, United Kingdom.
