The Picture of Dorian Gray Now Available for Pre-Order

23 May 2013

Big Finish is delighted to reveal Stuart Manning’s striking cover art for a brand-new full-cast adaptation of Oscar Wilde's notorious novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, adapted by writer David Llewellyn, and starring Alexander Vlahos as in the title role. As an added bonus, all CD pre-order copies will come signed by Alex!

Oscar Wilde's only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray tells of the young man who offers his soul in return for eternal youth, and the life of corruption, murder and debauchery that quickly consumes him. Joining Alexander in the production are Miles Richardson as Lord Henry Wotton, Marcus Hutton as Basil Hallward, Aysha Kala as Sibyl Vane, James Unsworth as James Vane and Ian Hallard as Alan Campbell. Paul Jones, Louise Faulkner, Jolyon Westhorpe, Thomas Rees-Kaye and David Llewellyn also lend their vocal talents to proceedings.

'It's been a privilege to bring Wilde's most infamous narrative to life,' says producer and director Scott Handcock, 'and the cast all rose to the challenge superbly! David Llewellyn's done a magnificent job of writing an incredibly faithful script, whilst at the same time stripping it back to focus on Dorian and the people around him. It's witty, charming, sexy, scary and genuinely thrilling to listen to.'

The release will also include a bonus disc containing the opening episode of The Confessions of Dorian Gray: This World Our Hell, which features Dorian meeting the man himself - Oscar Wilde - as portrayed by Steffan Rhodri! 'It seemed like such a lovely bonus,' explains Scott. 'That first episode relies on Oscar’s involvement, so including it with the work that sparked it off seemed nicely appropriate. The disc will also include a suite of James Dunlop's incredible music from the series, so the set really does have something for everyone!'

The Picture of Dorian Gray will be released on triple CD in August 2013 as part of the Big Finish Classics range. And don't forget that all pre-ordered CD copies will be signed by Alexander Vlahos...
