BRIGHTON FRINGE FESTIVAL: The Picture of Dorian Gray@The Warren, Studio 2

May 2, 2017

Argus Angel Award winning Box Tale Soup return to Brighton Fringe with a thrilling new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Commissioned by the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, UCLA, Box Tale Soup’s new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray is an inventive and thought-provoking take on the classic tale of debauchery and scandal.

Young and beautiful, Dorian Gray sinks deep into a lifestyle of luxury and abandon, unchanged by corruption and untouched by age. But behind a thick, locked door, beneath a dark, heavy curtain, Dorian’s portrait tells a different story… In the company’s signature style, The Picture of Dorian Gray features captivating handmade puppets, but is also their first piece to include a larger cast – their previous shows have all employed just two performers.

Box Tale Soup have performed extensively around the UK, including appearances at the Little Angel, Lyric Hammersmith, Wilton’s Music Hall and the Bridgewater Hall. They have also taken work to China, America and Europe.

Recent collaborations include work with world-renowned choral ensemble The Sixteen, and Guardian Charity Award winners Music Action International. The company’s previous visits to Brighton Fringe have been well received by critics and audiences alike.
