Dorian

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

What if a portrait didn’t accurately reflect the life you’ve lived, but could be manipulated to show the life you wish you’d lived? What if your body was changing, but the image you saw of yourself wasn’t?

Following on from Medusa, Proper Job Theatre Company and Andrew McMillan have now created an inspired contemporary re-telling of Wilde’s Dorian Gray, exploring male vanity, gym culture, masculinity and body dysmorphia. In a society where gender is becoming fluid, how do men deal with the airbrushing, catfishing and online beautification?

Andrew McMillan
