In 1890 wealthy socialite Dorian Gray was found dead; unnaturally aged and recognisable only by the rings on his fingers, near a stunning painting of himself in his prime. In the present day a young man who bears a striking resemblance to that painting gets more than he bargained for when what seems to be a date takes a dark turn. Trapped in a battle of wits with a woman who has every reason to do him harm, this man who also goes by the name Dorian Gray finds himself on trial, forced to answer for a century of crimes. But is he really who he says he is? And if so, has a hundred years changed him for the better or worse?
Dark, twisted and thought provoking, The Trial of Dorian Gray is a bold re-imagining and continuation of Oscar Wilde’s classic Faustian fable.
