Wilde’s Dorian Gray
The initiative of Dublin : One Book, One City is back and this year’s selection is Oscar Wilde’s only novel – The Picture of Dorian Gray.
The list of events organised in conjunction with the initiative is impressive, from theatre performances to novel readings, from walking tour to self-portrait workshop. Many of them have free admissions, often booking not necessary.
If you’re unfamiliar with the story and don’t think you have the time to read the book (but hey, a whole month, surely there are some time you can spare?) you can check out the movie Dorian Gray which came out last year, starring Ben Barnes, Colin Firth and Rebecca Hall. It was a pretty good one in my opinion.
