DORIAN at The House Theatre of Chicago



DORIAN
by Ben Lobpries and Tommy Rapley
Directed and Choreographed by Tommy Rapley
Based on the novel THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY by Oscar Wilde
http://thehousetheatre.com//playsandevents/dorian 

A Dark Thriller of Beauty and Obsession

Oscar Wilde’s love/hate affair with youth and beauty is captured in this visually arresting contemporary adaptation. House Company Members Director/Choreographer Tommy Rapley, Co-Writer Ben Lobpries and Composer Kevin O’Donnell seamlessly blend theatre and dance, revealing the unsightly truth behind each character’s outer beauty. Dorian Gray’s ill-fated portrait is a character who comes vividly to life, only to encourage his wicked and sexually irreverent indulgences.

DORIAN is intended for mature audiences.

“A stunning achievement” -WINDY CITY TIMES

“No question, Rapley’s appropriately stylized revision is THRILLING stuff, aesthetically consistent with Wilde… while PERFECTLY TUNED into the overkill of American affluence.” -CHICAGO FREE PRESS

    IMPORTANT NOTE FROM THE THEATER:
    The set of DORIAN is like an art gallery opening, and to reflect this, the first and second acts of DORIAN are performed in promenade staging. Audience members experience the show by walking and standing with the actors throughout the stage space. There will be places to perch during scenes, but not regular theater seats. With promenade staging you are encouraged to move about the stage however you like, which gives you some exciting choice in exactly how you experience this show. Cool right? If you know you won't be able to stand for a duration, please just let the theater know and they'll arrange seating for you. Current estimated run time for DORIAN is 2 hours and 20 minutes including 2 intermissions.
