WICKED YOUTH
NAKED TRUTH

Dorian Gray is the incarnation of eternally seductive male youth - lovely and lively lads up for anything and everything. Dorian’s name summons up deliciously sensual sin on an almost industrial scale, and everyone knows the myth of Dorian remaining exquisitely young while his portrait ages in the attic.

In this two-hander musical, Dorian is given a fictional afterlife as he turns the tables on his creator, Oscar Wilde, who is himself metaphorically stripped bare as Dorian uncovers his intriguing secrets.

The Australian premiere of Dorian Gray Naked explores the character’s sexually tumultuous lifestyle and has more than one sting in its tail as triple music theatre threat, Blake Appelqvist, reveals all.
