Cloughjordan House, North Tipperary

Food and theatre under one roof is my kind of event.

Cloughjordan House, Co. Tipperary are hosting their first dinner theatre event in the ballroom of the house as they present an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde novel The Picture of Dorian Grey by Wonderland Productions on the Saturday 12th May starting at 7.30pm

The story is set in the decadent world of Victorian London, where socialite Lord Henry Wotton seduces the beautiful boyish Dorian Grey into a hedonistic life of indulgences, vice and dissipation. Infatuated by Basil Hallward’s portrait, Dorian makes a Faustian pact that he will remain forever young while the picture charts his decline into sin and ultimate self destruction. The Picture of Dorian Grey moves from drawing room comedy and is a compelling and hugely entertaining theatrical event.

What to expect?

An evening of great fun, fabulous food where the players will perform in and around the dining tables of the Ballroom with its cozy, large open fireplace as a backdrop. The venue and setting is unique: you will be dining on local spring lamb cooked whole over a wood fire, desserts using local rhubarb, Boulbane ice-cream and Lough Derg chocolates with Fair Trade teas and coffees. All produce will be prepared and cooked by chefs from Cloughjordan House Cookery School.

The Picture of Dorian Grey will be performed by a cast of four led by Michael James Ford and Simon Coury. The play has been performed to great acclaim in a number of big houses such as Rathsallagh House and Annesbrook House as well as a number of runs in Bewleys Café. This hugely entertaining adaptation has been very well received by the critics.

Tickets available at €40 per person or a group rate of €35 per person for group bookings of 6 or more. For more information visit CloughjordanHouse.com or call Peter on 087-2515694
