Oscar Wilde reimagined for the 21st century
Prodigal Entertainment, the producers behind Dirk Gently’s holistic detective agency, Frankenstein’s mother, and Broadway Small jagged pill, and the Clover Press publishers have radically reinvented Oscar Wilde’s classic (and unique) novel, Dorian Gray’s photo, in GREY, a modern, feminist and supernatural revenge thriller.
The first volume of GREY will hit stores in July 2021, with volume two and audio drama set to release nationwide in fall 2021.
The Kickstarter to fund Volume 2 as well as the star-studded audio drama launched today and runs through May 19. Award tiers include digital and print versions of the graphic novel, digital download of the 8-episode audio drama, postcards, and prints. The $ 300 level offers the option of being drawn into the comics or playing a small role in the audio drama. And if you’re a Broadway fan, you might want to consider the $ 500 tier, which is packed with Little jagged pill goods, including two tickets for the show (at each reopening).
Early contributors who pledge $ 45 or more will receive an exclusive set of 10 character tarot cards, but you must pledge within the first 48 hours to get it for free! The set will be available for purchase once the 48 hours have elapsed.
From the Kickstarter:
Our DORIAN GRAY is a social media princess who roams New York’s coolest cliques, lives the most debauched life, breaks hearts and turns heads wherever she goes. But Dorian has secrets. On the one hand, she is a violent criminal. On the other hand, she is an immortal creature of magic, hell on a mission of revenge against some of America’s most powerful men.
Written by Audible Bestselling author and Stoker nominated Arvind Ethan David of Prodigal Entertainment, and drawn by Eugenia Koumaki, inked by Diana Greenhalgh and colored by Joana Lafuente, the story will address important issues of today such as sexual assault and the #MeToo movement, LGBTQ + community struggles and systemic racism. Prodigal Entertainment works with RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, to provide resources to listeners and project members on sexual assault issues explored in history.
By the way, April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, and if you’re looking for an organization to donate to, RAINN will match donations up to $ 40,000 until the end of the month.
Meanwhile, the audio drama, starring a slew of Tony and Emmy nominated actors, will tell Dorian’s story like a true crime investigation podcast. The drama stars Lauren Patten, nominated for Tony (Broadway’s Small jagged pill, Blue blood) like Dorian Gray, Neil Brown, Jr. (SEAL team, Straight out of Compton) as Emmy winner Detective Hank Wutan Richard Schiff (The good doctor, West wing, Se7en) as Detective Augustus Bracknell, Tony Nominee Samuel Barnett (Dirk Gently’s holistic detective agency, Dreadful Penny, The boys of the story) as villain, Baron Claus Arnheim, Kiran Deol (Sunny side, The biggest ever) like Gwendolyn. Milena Govich (FBI, Chicago fire), will also lead and play the role of Ms. Cheveley. The role of Speranza, the mysterious narrator of the podcast, has yet to be chosen.
Praise is already pouring in for GREY, from screenwriters like Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer’s body) and Stéphanie Folsom (Toy story 4) and Eisner-nominated writers like Mike Carey (Unwritten, Lucifer), who rented GREY as “incisive”, “wickedly funny”, “magnificent” and “provocative”.
