Sarah Snook, who plays Shiv Roy in HBO’s hit series Succession, will return to the London stage next year in a new stage adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Adapted and directed by Sydney Theatre Company Artistic Director Kip Williams, previews will begin January 23, 2024, prior to an official opening January 31 at The Theatre Royal Haymarket. (This adaptation was first seen in Sydney in 2020.)
Williams' collision of form employs an interplay of video and theatre through an intricately choreographed collection of on-stage cameras bringing to life 26 characters, each played by Snook.
Snook, who made her London stage debut in 2016 in Matthew Warchus’ production of The Master Builder opposite Ralph Fiennes, says, “I am elated to return to the London stage in such an astonishing piece of theatre. From Oscar Wilde’s remarkable original text to Kip Williams’ stunning adaptation, this story of morality, innocence, narcissism, and consequence is going to be thrilling to recreate for a new audience. I can’t wait.”
The upcoming production will also have design by Marg Horwell, lighting design by Nick Schlieper, composition and sound design by Clemence Williams, and video design by David Bergman.
Performances are currently scheduled through April 13.
