Cast line-up for Picture of Dorian Gray

The Octagon in Bolton is one of a number of partner venues to present a brand new digital production of The Picture of Dorian Gray with a starry cast next month.

Joining previously announced Fionn Whitehead, in the title role, are Alfred Enoch as Harry Wooton, Joanna Lumley as Lady Narborough, Emma McDonald as Sibyl Vane and Russell Tovey as Basil Hallward with Stephen Fry as the Interviewer.

From the creative team behind What a Carve Up!, the Faustian tale by Wilde is brought into a world of Instagram, Facebook and dating apps. The contemporary take follows influencer Dorian Gray as he makes a deal for his social star never to fade.

It will run for two weeks from March 16–31.
