M-34 Productions and Irondale present; SALOME
Rarely performed and relentlessly misunderstood, Salome by Oscar Wilde was largely dismissed as a Victorian oddity, an excuse to show some skin. With this new translation by director James Rutherford, Salome reveals itself as a tragic parable of queer longing. 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.
