Seattle Immersive Theatre is thrilled to present the reading of Joshua Jon's adaptation of Oscar Wilde's infamous novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray". THE CAST DORIAN GRAY - Katherine Grant-Suttie BASIL HOWARD - Max Holley HENRY WOTTEN - Mark Waldstein SIBYL VANE - Jacquelyn Miedema JAMES VANE - Randall Brammer ADRIAN SINGLETON - Jared Holloway-Thomas Directed by Richard Sean Glen Music composed and performed live by Jeremiah Akin In present day Portland, Basil Howard is an emerging painter who becomes quickly enamored with a beautiful and vapid young man by the name of Dorian Gray. Basil's obsession culminates with a magnificent portrait of Dorian, and while putting the finishing touches on the painting, they are both visited by Basil's fair-weather friend and patron, the salacious Henry Wotten. Henry warps the susceptible mind of Dorian who, now reproached with the idea that his youth and beauty will someday be lost, makes a wish that the painting would bear the marks of his age and wrongdoings and that he would remain the same forever. The wish is granted and, under Henry's tutelage, Dorian plunges into a decades-long quest for pleasure and grandeur, no matter what the cost. The Picture of Dorian Gray examines ego, life imitating art, and what is means to lose one's soul. A feedback session will follow. Audience members will be given the chance to provide helpful insight on their experience to the playwright. WHEN: The ides of March, (March 15th). 7:00PM WHERE: Liberty bar on Cap Hill
