Featuring Marcella Evaristi, Janette Foggo and Tom McGovern.
‘The tragedy of old age is not that one is old but that one is young.’ Oscar Wilde.
In this ingenious and witty retelling of Oscar Wilde’s story, two middle aged friends, Dolores and Daisy puzzle over the unblemished looks of their strangely youthful contemporary, the gorgeous Miss Dorian Gray.
To the upbeat Daisy, Dorian represents the heady possibility of eternal youth without invasive surgery, but Dolores remains deeply sceptical of Dorian’s explanations . . .
A blackmailed scientist, a murdered painter, aesthetic theories and moral consequences – Marcella Evaristi has deftly reassembled all the elements of the famous story into a sharply original dark comedy.
Marcella Evaristi has written extensively for the theatre, tv and radio. Her plays have been produced in theatres across the UK including the Traverse, Edinburgh, the Tron, Glasgow, the Lyric Studio, Hammersmith, and the Crucible Sheffield. She has also been a writer-in-residence at St Andrews, Glasgow, Strathclyde and Sheffield universities.
BBCR4 has recently broadcast the third series of her comedy drama ‘The Gobetweenies’.
In 2008 she performed in her one woman play ‘This Time I Promise’ at the Òran Mór.
