Headlong's new production of Oscar Wilde's verse tragedy. Read More >

The savage power of ancient myth collides with 20th century decadence in Oscar Wilde’s verse tragedy, Salome.

In return for performing the dance of the seven veils, Salome, step-daughter of King Herod, demands the head of John The Baptist.

Jamie Lloyd (Piaf, Three Days Of Rain in the West End) directs a contemporary production of this rarely-seen masterpiece for Headlong theatre company, known for its vivid and imaginative productions under Artistic Director Rupert Goold.
