The Picture of Dorian Gray

6/6/2018 through 7/1/2018 | Seattle Center Armory

Theatre Queen Anne/Seattle Center

When the handsome Dorian Gray sees a portrait a male admirer has made of him, he laments, “how sad it is! I will grow old and horrible and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young … if it were only the other way.”—and a Faustian bargain is struck. Oscar Wilde’s only novel scandalized Victorian England with its open examination of sex, drugs, and even murder, and its ultimate revelation that hiding from one’s true self is the real sin.
