Young members of the famous Redgrave and Fox dynasties will appear in Dorian Gray at Riverside Studios in April.

Daisy Bevan, granddaughter of Vanessa Redgrave and daughter of Joely Richardson, and Jack Fox, youngest son of James Fox and nephew to Edward Fox, will both make their stage debuts in the production.

Adapted by Linnie Reedman with music and lyrics by Joe Evans, Dorian Gray, adapted from Oscar Wilde's classic novel about a man who preserves his youthful looks thanks to a hidden portrait, "recreates the dark, murky underbelly of late 19th century London".

Dorian Gray, which runs at Riverside Studios from 16 April to 10 May 2014, started life as a one night gala performance at London's Cafe Royal.

Jack Fox has appeared in the TV series Mr Selfridge, Fresh Meat, Lewis, Privates and Dracula. Daisy Bevan, the fourth generation of her family to enter the profession, has just finished filming The Two Faces of January with Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac, due out in the spring.
