Enjoy Theatre & Afternoon Tea at Borris House – What A Treat!

A unique opportunity to experience Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray over Afternoon Tea in the unique setting of Borris House
 
April 26, 2011 - PRLog -- Wonderland Production’s theatrical adaptation of Wilde’s classic novella, The Picture of Dorian Gray, has played to great acclaim countrywide following its two previously sold-out runs at Bewleys’ James Joyce Room on Grafton Street.  In partnership with The George Bernard Shaw Theatre it will now tour to Carlow, taking place at Borris House & Gardens on May 8th.
Decadent Victorian London; the socialite Lord Henry Wotton seduces the beautifully boyish Dorian Gray into a hedonistic life of indulgence, murder and excess.  Unlike Lord Henry, Dorian never ages, for he has made a Faustian pact with Basil Hallward’s portrait of him, that he will remain forever young whilst his picture charts his decline into sin and ultimate self-destruction.
The Picture of Dorian Gray moves from drawing room comedy to Gothic horror and is a compelling and hugely entertaining theatrical event. It is directed by Alice Coghlan whose previous credits for Wonderland include Gulliver’s Travels, La Locandiera, I Pagliacci, and Life Shop Till You Drop! and it features Gate Theatre regulars Michael James Ford and Michael Winder, alongside Simon Coury, a veteran of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
All tickets include a decadent Afternoon Tea that Oscar would approve of.

Date & Time: Sunday, May 8th at 4.00 pm
Venue: Borris House & Gardens, Borris, Co. Carlow
Ticket Price: €27.50 – including a decadent afternoon tea Oscar would approve of!
