The new production based on Oscar Wilde’s novel will begin performances at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on the 23rd January 2024.

Having last been seen in the West End in The Master Builder opposite Ralph Fiennes at the Old Vic, it has been confirmed that Sarah Snook will appear in a new solo adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray, which will run in the West End for a strictly limited 12 week run.

Adapted and directed for the stage by Kip Williams, the production was first seen in Sydney in 2020 and will see the actress taking on all 26 roles of the piece.

“I am elated to return to the London stage in such an astonishing piece of theatre,” Snook said. “From Oscar Wilde’s remarkable original text to Kip Williams’ stunning adaptation, this story of morality, innocence, narcissism, and consequence is going to be thrilling to recreate for a new audience. I can’t wait.”

The London season of The Picture of Dorian Gray is produced by Michael Cassel, Adam Kenwright, Len Blavatnik and Danny Cohen, Daryl Roth, Amanda Lipitz and Henry Tisch, Jonathan Church.

Oscar Wilde’s classic story is one that explores and examines questions of beauty and vanity as well as the fickleness of society. It was the only novel that Wildre wrote and was originally published in 1890. Since then, it has been adapted numerous times for television and film.
