    Shades of Gray
    Colliding Scopes Theatre's inaugural show – a devised, modern exploration of Oscar Wilde’s iconic novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Shades of Gray was an environmental theatre performance that took place in student housing around Queen’s.

Incorporating original artwork developed live, shadow puppetry, a rave dance sequence and live music, Shades of Gray became a truly unique, interdisciplinary performance work that explored what is considered art – and what happens if we decide to treat ourselves like a masterpiece.
