Sarah Snookreturning to West End theatre was not on our 2023 bingo card - but we're very glad its happening! The actress will star in a new adaptation of Oscar Wilde's only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray.

However, the role the Succession){href=' in a new tab)' target='_blank' rel='noreferrer noopener'} star is undertaking is incredibly impressive. Snook will play 26 different characters in a thrilling two hour long one-woman show. The actress told BBC News the idea of playing so many roles was 'an exhilarating challenge I can't wait to get into.'

A description of the production available on the Sydney Theatre Company's website states that the play blends 'live and pre-recorded video with live performance and enabling a single performer to nimbly shapeshift and play all of the dark tale’s 26 characters in an audacious cascade of theatrical transformations.'

This marks Snook’s second stint on the West End stage. She made her London theatre debut in 2016 in an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s The Master Builder opposite Ralph Fiennes.

In a statement, Snook said, 'I am elated to return to the London stage in such an astonishing piece of theatre. From Oscar Wilde’s remarkable original text to Kip Williams’ stunning adaptation, this story of morality, innocence, narcissism and consequence is going to be thrilling to recreate for a new audience. I can’t wait.'

She continued, 'But my heart had to be this full of all the memories, good times, challenges and triumphs, to be able to break at all… so that makes me grateful. To have been blessed to join this crazy adventure of a show will be a career highlight, which will no doubt be hard to top.'
