BLUE DEVIL'S 2020 PRODUCTION
Blue Devil is thrilled to announce our 2020 Production – ‘The Tragedy of Dorian Gray’ a new play by Ross Dinwiddy.
Based on Oscar Wilde’s classic, gothic novel ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’, our new play ‘The Tragedy of Dorian Gray’ moves Dorian from the Victorian era and places his story in the latter half of the twentieth century.
It’s 1965 - The world has changed and London is swinging. In a studio in Chelsea, a young man is about to have his portrait painted.
From there, Dorian Gray’s odyssey of fame, vanity, lust and corruption plays out against the changing music and fashion as the decades pass - all leading to a shattering climax at the turn of the millennium.

BLUE DEVIL'S 2019 PRODUCTIONS
After their sell out, 5-star reviewed, critical success with Franz Kafka – Apparatus at London’s White Bear Theatre throughout January this year, Blue Devil Productions returned to The Rialto Theatre for Brighton Fringe 2019 with this brand-new production. Now, The Geminus will transfer to The Tristan Bates Theatre in London's West End in August.
The Geminus by Ross Dinwiddy, a reimagining of Joseph Conrad’s, ‘The Secret Sharer’. In this story of a different heart of darkness from Conrad, themes of love, trust, isolation and sexuality collide in an unsettling, yet poignant romance.
Based on the novella, The Secret Sharer by Joseph Conrad, this classic tale is retold as a dark romance and voyage of self-discovery.
The Geminus is a British ship, far from home, sailing through perilous, exotic waters. Young Captain George Hotson is feeling the strain and isolation of his new command. But, Hotson is about to meet his 'second-self' in a fugitive called Leggatt, a handsome and enigmatic stranger with blood on his hands.
We are proud to announce that our second play coming to Brighton Fringe in May at the beautiful Rialto Theatre on Dyke Road will be "I am a Camera", by John van Druten, adapted from The Berlin Stories of Christopher Isherwood & will be directed by Ross Dinwiddy.
Is Sally Bowles a sophisticated thrill-seeker or vulnerable innocent abroad? She’s certainly a fascinating mass of contradictions.
'I am a Camera' is the play that 'Cabaret' is based on. It is a rich picture of the heartbreaking pathos, wicked comedy and divine decadence of 1931 Berlin. But soon the carefree indulgence must end as the Nazis smash their way to power.
Chris and Sally's adventure in a city at a unique turning point in history is a profound and deeply resonating story, yet sexy and funny in the face of it all.
"I am a Camera" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
Apparatus closes in London on a high.
Blue Devil's production of Ross Dinwiddy's compelling new play based on Kafka's 'In the Penal Colony' finished its London run at The White Bear to full houses and critical plaudits sweeping up more 4-star reviews along the way..
Blue Devil will return with Apparatus at a later date, but for now, the work starts on The Geminus in anticipation of Brighton Fringe and London dates.
