Publisher's 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.

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 wonderfully atmospheric dramatisation. I was moved and chilled, finally touched by Dorian's distress at the end. Memorable.
