Salo 

Oscar Wilde

15th - 25th May 2019

“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, Wilde’s outrageously provocative Salomé comes to the stage in this exotic and exquisite new production and features as the final production in our second year-long residency at The Greenwich Theatre.


Salomé is produced in association with the Greenwich Theatre.

Wilde... the man himself

Oscar Wilde was an Anglo-Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and critic. He is regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the Victorian Era.

In his lifetime he wrote nine plays, one novel, and numerous poems, short stories, and essays.

Wilde was a proponent of the Aesthetic movement, which emphasised aesthetic values more than moral or social themes. This doctrine is most clearly summarised in the phrase 'art for art's sake'.

Besides literary accomplishments, he is also famous, or perhaps infamous, for his wit, flamboyance, and affairs with men. He was tried and imprisoned for his homosexual relationship (then considered a crime) with the son of an aristocrat.
