Wilde's Banned Biblical Play SALOME Opens 2017 Season for Provincetown TheaterWilde's Banned Biblical Play SALOME Opens 2017 Season for Provincetown Theater
by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2017

Oscar Wilde's wildly controversial "Salome" will be presented May 4 to May 20 at The Provincetown Theater.

The play is full of religious mysticism, prophecy and superstition. Its characters mull over ideas about religious belief, morality, the ruling class, and especially human lust and sexual desire. Wilde's lyrical text mates image-rich cadences and repetitions with the narcissistic, violent and sexually-charged appetites of the play's central characters. (more...)
