ABOUT YOUNG COMPANY

YOUNG COMPANY

This is a versatile group of young actors aged 12-19 who make up the cast of CYTO's next termly production: The Picture of Dorian Gray. They will attend rehearsals throughout the term to prepare for public performances.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

Believe me, no civilised man ever regrets a pleasure...
 

As London slides from one century into the next, a young man is cursed with the uncanny ability to remain both young and beautiful while descending into a life of heartless debauchery. With its glittering dialogue, provocative imagery and radical questioning of sexual and moral freedoms all brought sharply into focus by Neil Bartlett's adaptation, Oscar Wilde’s infamous parable has lost none of its power to provoke and disturb.
