‘The Palace’ cabaret club, Berlin, sometime in the late 1920s. A drag performer, their faded mother, the controlling stepfather, a preacher who lives in the basement, a doorman and a patron.

This radical new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé tells the biblical story in a place we’ve never seen it before as cabaret performer Salomé struggles to maintain her independence in an environment controlled by sex, seeking salvation in the baptist preacher Jonathan, only to be scorned as a “child of Sodom”.

A visceral and gut-wrenching tragedy which explores the depths of rejection and fetishisation as a queer person.

This production is suitable for ages 16 and over.
