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

This is the first show I've seen at House and I liked it very much. The story was good, not overly original though, and the characters were interesting. I wouldn't call it a "thriller" because the ending wasn't very exciting or suspenseful. But, it was well done and entertaining.
