"The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it."
Weaving Wilde's poetry into new text, Gray tells the story of Dorian Gray as it might be written today, for a Toronto theatre. Relaxed moral attitudes allow us to push deeper into areas Wilde couldn't explore. With Dorian Gray as a spine we confront gender, sexuality, and the politics of power.

Married at twelve to a man old enough to be her father and nearly dying in child birth at thirteen, Lady Capulet has become cold and remote. When her eyes are unexpectedly opened to all that she has been denied, love, kindness and passion, she begins to hope for more. Unfolding at the same time as the classic story of Romeo and Juliet, fate plays cruelly with all of them.
