Salome


  • Lansburgh Theatre 450 7th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20004 United States (map)

The story has been told before, but never like this. In this new work, internationally acclaimed adaptor/director Yaël Farber reworks Oscar Wilde's play with ancient Arabic and Hebraic texts. The result is an urgently relevant exploration of the woman's voice in history, oppressed people's power over their own bodies, and the explosive connections between religious and political uprising. Part of the Women’s Voices Theater Festival.
