This leads Dorian on a strange adventure through the city and society, its theatres and romances, where appearances and intentions do not always match.
Dorian begins to discover not just the glitz of Lord Henry’s circle, but the horror and darkness hiding not too far beneath the surface. The text includes a variety of activities for the four skills and dossiers to explore and expand the cultural and historical aspects associated with the story.
