by Maggie Yates - May 6, 2016

Interesting, overlapping personal narratives tell slightly different stories, making the whole story strong, but mysterious in the little places of ambguity.

Slipstream Theatre Initiative to Present THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2016

'Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.' Join Slipstream as we explore Oscar Wilde's masterpiece through a new lens. Set during the golden years of Hollywood, a young man unwittingly trades his soul for immortality, and discovers the actual price of fame. This surreal look into the lines that separate and blur the notions of morality versus mortality is done with four actors. One actor remains Dorian Gray, while the rest of the company morphs into the people, ideas, and Ghosts of Dorian's life as his grip on sanity loosens. Just how long can a person remain an ideal before it starts to consume him whole, and how many people are destroyed in the process? What is the true cost of eternal youth? (more...)
