SALOME by Oscar Wilde
In a new translation by director James Rutherford, Oscar Wilde's play SALOME reveals itself as a tragic parable of queer longing. Pouring his own doomed desires into the imprisoned prophet Iokanaan, the mercurial princess Salome, and even the vulgar paranoid Herod Antipas, Oscar Wilde explodes a Biblical footnote into a surreal moonscape of alienated passion. Eerily prescient, utterly mysterious, SALOME is a prophecy of social destruction, a parable of what nightmares erupt when we demonize desire, criminalize otherness, and look but never see. Presented by M-34 at the Irondale Center in Brooklyn, NY.
