A dramatic production based on the biblical tale of lust and revenge, Oscar Wilde’s Salome draws the audience into a decadent world of passion and betrayal. The play follows the legend of King Herod and his unbridled desire for Salome, the young daughter of his wife, Herodias. Salome, indifferent to Herod’s advances, longs for the love of the imprisoned John the Baptist. When he rejects her, she uses her powers of seduction and manipulation — and the Dance of the Seven Veils — to seek her revenge. Mark Jackson directs.
