What if you looked at a photograph of yourself but didn’t recognise the person looking back at you?

How much do you really want to know yourself, and what will you give to get there? Are there types of body dysmorphia that we feel more sympathetic towards than others? When do we ever truly see the body of another person? What if the image in front of us is changing, but we can’t see it?

This brand-new play, inspired by Oscar Wilde’s classic story The Picture of Dorian Gray, speaks to urgent contemporary concerns around masculinity, the body, ageing and ways of looking.
