SALOMÉ

29/08/2017 till 29/08/2017

Imprisoned by a fearful Herod, the prophet Jokanaan rejects the sexual advances of Herod’s stepdaughter, Salomé. When she is compelled by Herod to dance, Salomé is filled with lust-driven revenge and demands the head of the prophet as payment. Salomé has fascinated and inspired artists across the ages. Oscar Wilde’s lyrical one-act drama – originally banned in Britain – reinvents Salomé as a powerful and enigmatic figure, both erotic and chaste. Marking 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, Owen Horsley (Associate Director on the King & Country season) directs this new, contemporary take on Oscar Wilde’s classic, placing sexual ambiguity at the core. American artist Perfume Genius provides the music for this production, which revels in the beauty of this poetic masterpiece. Features nudity and scenes of a sexual nature.

Vice Versa - RSC

11/05/2017 till 09/09/2017

Vice Versa, or The Decline And Fall Of General Braggadocio At The Hands Of His Canny Servant Dexter And Terence The Monkey.  A side-splitting comedy romp, lovingly ripped off from the Roman comedies of Plautus by Phil Porter (The Christmas Truce, 2014; A Mad World My Masters, 2013). A wily servant and a pair of wronged young lovers team up to bamboozle a pompous general in this riotous new farce. Dodgy disguises, comic capers and a talking monkey create pandemonium as the tricksters try to save the girl, free the servant and live to tell the tale! Director Janice Honeyman (who directed Antony Sher in the Baxter Theatre’s 2009 production of The Tempest in association with the RSC) piles on the physical fun in this world premiere production at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
