September 20th, 2017 – October 1st, 2017


Inspired by Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece The Picture of Dorian Gray, the play explores the opulent and sensual world of contemporary art in present-day Toronto. Van Soelen asks us to question our indulgences, tastes, and the nature of human connection in this hard look at female identity and the implications of our society’s obsession with beauty.

When Jane sculpts Dorian, a naive and exquisitely beautiful woman, it is perfection – until Dorian is swept into the hedonistic and morally ambiguous world of Opal, an upscale gallery owner. As Dorian becomes more and more self-involved and destructive, the sculpture begins to absorb her acts of cruelty, while Dorian remains young and beautiful. An examination of beauty, ageing and self-indulgence, Gray contrasts the themes of the classic novel with our modern world. (
