The Picture of Dorian Gray
Fresh from a West End run of The Trials of Oscar Wilde, European Arts Company returns with a thrilling adaptation of Wilde’s only novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Set in the decadent world of Victorian London, a beautiful, narcissistic young man called Dorian Gray becomes infatuated by the exquisite portrait that Basil Hallward has painted of him.
He makes a Faustian pact that he will remain forever young while the picture grows old. Combining drawing room comedy and Gothic horror, this is a gripping and hugely entertaining theatrical event.
"Gothic and comedy are rarely terms you hear in the same sentence but not so in this hilarious stage reworking of Oscar Wilde’s allegorical novel. Director Jonny Kemp’s undoubted Monty Python influence, with cross-dressing aristocracy and two fingers to English pomposity, worked a treat". Herts and Essex News

Red Wine Serenaders
Veronica Sbergia and Max De Bernardi – From Blues to Vaudeville
Veronica Sbergia and Max De Bernardi passionately play country blues and ragtime, hokum, jug band and rural music from the 20s and 30s. They like to keep this precious musical heritage alive, faithfully reproducing its original sound, whilst playing it with a modern twist.
Their music presents an overview of American popular music from the early years of the last century. The Red Wine Serenaders re-interpret great songs by artists in their own unique style, including Big Bill Broonzy, Memphis Minnie, Jimmie Rodgers, Sidney Bechet, Lucille Bogan, Bo Carter and the Delmore Brothers.
“Good time blues is alive and well and residing in... Milan, Italy. A band with a mission” Folk and Roots Magazine
