Photo Flash: First Look at Ruby In The Dust's DORIAN GRAY at Riverside Studios
Marking the theatrical debut of its two young stars; talented offspring of two of Britain's legendary acting dynasties, Ruby In The Dust's acclaimed DORIAN GRAY runs now through May 10 at Riverside Studios. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!
The show introduces Daisy Bevan, the latest Redgrave to take to the stage, alongside the exceedingly handsome (appropriate, as Dorian) Jack Fox. So book now to get swept up in the decadent drama and heady seduction of this promising production; the epitome of the gothic fairy tale.
Adapted by Linnie Reedman with music and lyrics by Joe Evans, this adaptation, DORIAN GRAY, recreates the dark, murky underbelly of late 19th Century London - the tawdry theatres, burlesque bars, cabaret clubs and opium dens into which the eponymous anti-hero descends, far far away from the opera houses, the salons and the gentlemen's clubs that he likes to be seen in.
Jack Fox (the latest in a long line following the family tradition, youngest son of James Fox and nephew to Edward Fox) has previously appeared in the TV series Mr. Selfridge, Fresh Meat, Lewis, Privatesand Dracula. Daisy Bevan (the fourth generation of Redgraves to enter the acting world, granddaughter of Vanessa Redgrave and daughter of Joely Richardson) has just finished filming The Two Faces of Januarywith Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac, which is due out in the spring.
Formed in 2006 by Young Vic genesis director Linnie Reedman and acclaimed composer/musical director Joe Evans, Ruby in the Dust has twelve productions under its belt, including shows both on the Fringe and the West End and other site specific venues. Past credits include the critically praised The Great Gatsby Musical, Hutch (both at Riverside Studios), Miracle starring Susannah York and Tim Woodward (St Andrew Church Crypt and Leicester Square Theatre) and Bonnie and Clyde (The King's Head Theatre).
The show has recently been translated into Dutch and just enjoyed a successful run at the "Theatre 1892" in Zoetemeer, Holland, as part of the Thriller Festival 2013.
