About the Play

Internationally acclaimed adaptor/director Yaël Farber infuses this raw New Testament tale with evocative sound and physicality, drawing on ancient biblical and pagan texts, as well as Oscar Wilde’s landmark mystery play, to spin a tale as provocative as the Dance of the Seven Veils. Salomé marks STC’s entry in the Women’s Voices Theatre Festival with a world premiere adaptation by Farber, returning to STC after her Helen Hayes Award nominated Mies Julie. Salomé was commissioned through a grant from the Beech Street Foundation.
