The Picture of Dorian Gray - The Play


John Osborne from Oscar Wilde

Published by Samuel French Inc

4 Female

John Osborne has created a brilliant dramatization of this classic about a man who retains his youth while the decay of advancing years and moral corruption appears on a portrait painted by one of his lovers

"Osborne has done much more than a scissors and paste job on Wilde's famous story. He has ... created a sense of evil through implication" ~ Guardian

"John Osborne ... has found in Oscar Wilde's macabre morality a velveted barouche for his own favorite themes [and he] conveys the fabulous story's ... fascination" ~ Daily Telegraph
