Summary

A BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation of Wilde's gothic masterpiece. When Dorian Gray gazes upon his portrait, he is struck by his own youth and beauty and makes a wish that they will last forever. Gradually, his simple good nature is corrupted with the help of his hedonistic friend Lord Henry Wotton. Dorian sinks into a life of debauchery and depravity yet keeps his innocent good looks. Only his portrait reveals the true corruption of his soul.
Starring Jamie Glover as Dorian Gray and Ian McDiarmid as Lord Henry Wotton.

Beautiful Performance

This is one of the better productions of the famous Dorian Gray. A beautiful performance by Glover and McDairmid. Like it so much I can listen to it any amount of times any where. All comes down to sticking to the Victorian theme and the brilliance of the actors. Could not listen to the modern versions which as usual lost the gloss and charisma of the era which makes Wildes plays.

Hauntingly well-acted.

Beautifully narrated, clear distinction between characters in their voice and manner. The best bits if radio drama (music, sound effects and characterisation) are blended with Wikde's story-telling. Gripping stuff and much more manageable length than the original.

A suspenseful, breathtaking ride...

I was expecting something a little stodgy but this is a fast-paced, compelling narrative that was splendidly acted. Not a wasted word and all the wit of Wilde is front and center.
