Oscar Wilde would be turning in his grave – with laughter – as LipService Theatre presents The Picture of Doreen Gray, a new twist on his classic novel.

The comic performance takes place on Wednesday at the Ashcroft Arts Centre, Fareham.

Celebrity presenter Doreen Gray has it all: a drive time radio show, a high ratings lifestyle programme on Even More 4.

But hitting 50, Doreen finds her face no longer fits the bill. At a school reunion she stumbles across a youthful self-portrait and makes a dark and dreadful pact with the picture.

Award-winning LipService Theatre returns to the Ashcroft in its 30th anniversary year.

The company has twice won the Critics Award for Comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and last year won the Stage Door Foundation Award for Excellence.

The Picture of Doreen Gray is on at 7.30pm.
