Gravy Bath Productions announces the inauguration of the New Classical Theatre Festival with two productions in repertory. Anthony Kokx revises Oscar Wilde's novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, for the stage. A tale of fixation and downfall, Kokx challenges a new generation with a fresh and aggressive adaptation of Wilde's classic tale. Madd Harold adapts Shakespeare's Coriolanus, exploring man and the state, mediocrity and greatness. One company, two directors, and two important works in repertory will launch the National Classical Theatre Festival - Canada's newest theatre festival.
