Shades of Gray, an original script by beloved late local playwright/director/actor Jeffrey Hartgraves, opens  Friday, July 31 at the Next Stage, and runs Thursday/Friday/Saturday through August 15.  Inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Hartgrraves' play is the story of a man approaching a milestone birthday who, when forced to examine everything  he knows about life, begins to realize that he is not the man he thought he was.

Theatre Shark was formed in the summer of 2008 by Hartgraves, who died unexpectedly that fall.  “All of us share Jeffrey’s enthusiasm for creating meaningful, satisfying, entertaining theatre,” said Artistic Director Donald Currie.  “We are committed to keeping alive his dream that theatre has the ability to touch everyone.
