Immersive experience – Picture of Dorian Gray through September 28th

123 years after its publication, Alchemic Order presents The Picture of Dorian Gray in a 1773 Georgian townhouse in Greenwich, representing Dorian Gray’s 19th century Salon.  From Alchemic “You are invited on a journey through time, space and imagination, from aristocratic Victoriana to the decadent underworld of a gothic nightmare and beyond.”

The Alchemic Order.

The Stage “Passionate, inventive and most importantly, memorable.”

Evening Standard “the audience ‘inhabits’ the world of Gray.”

Islington Gazette ✮✮✮✮✮
“It is a labour of love that translates and showcases an impeccably high standard of acting. More than a theatre experience. More than a good night out. An evening of the sort of gluttonous pleasure that Lord Henry would have heartily encouraged.”
Remote Goat ✮✮✮✮✮
“Simply great fun: funny, disturbing, novel and performed with an infectious warm enthusiasm. Well worth buying a ticket.”
One Stop Arts ✮✮✮✮
“This ambitious site-specific adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s 1890 novella is executed with loving attention to detail and no small amount of flair. The result is both intimate and flamboyant; an immersive evening of glorious Victorian decadence.”
Greenwich Time “To call this ‘pop-up theatre’ would be doing the planning that’s gone into it a disservice; recreating the ‘parlour aesthetic’ is taking the Victorian novel back to its roots.”
What’s Peen Seen? “A thoroughly enjoyable exploration of the eccentric and twisted Victorian tale. Impressively creative staging; the visual effect was highly effective and dramatic.”
