Today I did a promotion photo shoot with the cast and crew of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. We met up in Clare Cellars and then headed outside for the photo shoot. We did a few scenes in the backs before heading to the Clare Memorial Court.
On Camdram you can read the following about the play:
“You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.”
Dorian Gray; young, beautiful, innocent. A paragon of aesthetic virtue. Perfectly corruptible. After being inducted into the ways of hedonism by the unscrupulous Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian Gray makes an unnatural wish; that his portrait might age instead of himself, and that the signs of his sins might be soon on its canvas, rather than on his own faultless features. As all around him age and wither, Dorian alone remains without imperfection; eternally magnificent. But as his appetite turns to increasingly debauched tastes, darkness grows, and madness prowls.
Famously used at Wilde’s 1895 trial as evidence of his immoral nature, this June the infamous tale will be brought to life in the alluring surroundings of Clare Fellow’s Gardens.
“Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing”
Many thanks to the cast and crew for a fun photo shoot. The play is on 17-19 June in the beautiful Clare Fellows’ Garden.
