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

Ouisa Kittredge read somewhere that “everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people.” When Paul, a young victim of a knife attack, seeks assistance at her family’s upper-class New York home, she discovers how true that statement really is. Claiming to be Sidney’s Poitier’s son, Paul connects to Ouisa and her husband Flan in a way not even their own children have. But Paul may not be all he says he is, and his aggressive, far-reaching search for meaningful human contact creates a web of confusion and pain that – as Ouisa discovers – didn’t start, nor end, within her family’s walls. A comic-tragedy loosely based on a true story, “Six Degrees of Separation,” like a revolving Kandinsky, paints multiple sides on what drives and motivates us in the glare of money, greed, fame, lust and, finally, each other.
