After events for Edward II, The Caucasian Chalk Circle, The Taming of the Shrew, ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore, The Beggar’s Opera and Tamburlaine, I’m delighted to reunite with Lazarus Theatre to chair a series of post-show debates with the company and its guests at Greenwich Theatre: Shakespeare’s The Tempest, William Golding’s Lord of the Flies and Oscar Wilde’s Salome.
“Salomé, Salomé, dance for me.
I pray thee dance for me…”
Sexual, fiery, dangerous and decadent…
King Herod asks Salomé to dance for him… this request leads to The Dance of the Seven Veils and one of the most shocking, thrilling and scandalous climaxes ever seen on stage.
Originally banned in Britain, Oscar Wilde’s outrageously provocative 1891 Salomé comes to the stage in this exotic and exquisite new, 90-minute production, adapted and directed by Lazarus Theatre artistic director Ricky Dukes. It’s the final production in Lazarus second year-long residency at The Greenwich Theatre.
For the Q&A after the 7.30pm performance of Salome on Tuesday 21 May 2019, I’ll be joined by Ricky Dukes and a panel of expert guests.
