A contemporary adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, this unique production is performed promenade-style, where you follow the action and actors around the space, and features an intriguing blend of dance and dialogue. Dorian -- young, beautiful and aimless -- has just arrived in the big city, where local artists and critics have eagerly brought him into their fold. After a talented and frustrated painter named Basil Hallward crafts a gorgeous portrait of Dorian, the painting's young subject wishes to remain forever as lovely as this two-dimensional representation of him. And for many years -- through wild parties, brokenhearted lovers and occasional damage to the painting itself -- Dorian, growing steadily more wicked, does indeed remain flawlessly youthful. But what, if anything, will break this strange spell? With compelling choreography, acting and staging comes The House Theatre of Chicago's DORIAN, a modern spin on Wilde's rumination on youth and beauty. Learn More

We love Nathan Allan's work. It's creative and insightful - deeply passionate. There were several literal and metaphorical scenes that really made me think, if I allowed them to. Go and enjoy the show, and prepare to get aroused!
Book and lyrics by Chris Mathews, Jake Minton and Nathan Allen

Hard drinking, pill popping, parties and sex – these kids can have anything they want. But when six hot-blooded heartbroken teenagers decide they want more, life really gets dangerous. Now they’re on a high-stakes quest to find love by the end of the night… even if it kills them.
The House Theatre of Chicago injects the rock back into live theater in this over-the-top musical about high school love gone terribly wrong.
