A Festival of Sex, Love and Death: The Extraordinary Cabaret of Dorian Gray

27th Oct & 4th Nov 2017

Main House - Pleasance London



A Festival of Sex, Love and Death
Theme: Love

Set in the last few delirious hours of his life, Dorian Gray watches as his decadent life flashes before him. What he glimpses is a far cry from the opera houses, the salons and the gentlemen’s clubs. Join him as he delves into the darker, murkier underbelly of London: the cabaret clubs and opium dens, where sex and death share the same bed. And where love dare not speak its name. Descend into his world - the real picture of Dorian Gray – beneath his youthful mask: The Extraordinary Cabaret of Dorian Gray.

Adapted from Oscar Wilde’s only novel, tracing the life of one of literature’s most notorious characters, the tale reveals each character’s quest for love: the ultimate sensation!

With original music performed by a cast of actor/musicians and cabaret artists.


A Festival of Sex, Love and Death is a brand new, ten-day, multi-arts festival featuring an innovative and exciting programme of events: opera, cabaret, physical theatre, new writing and spoken word. The festival will form a melting pot of theatre-makers connected by the key forces that drive how we perceive and experience our lives: sex, love and death.
