A Headlong and Curve Theatre, Leicester co-production. At Hampstead Theatre 22 June - 17 July. www.hampsteadtheatre.com

The savage power of ancient myth collides with twentieth century decadence in Oscar Wilde's astonishing verse tragedy. Salome, step-daughter of King Herod agrees to perform the mysterious dance of the seven veils but demands in return the head of the King's most infamous prisoner. The head of John the Baptist.

Wilde's Salome is a dazzling, shocking piece of storytelling from one of the greatest writers of the last two hundred years. It is fragile, savage and shimmeringly beautiful, rendered in exquisite poetry and unforgettable theatrical images.

Jamie Lloyd is one of the most acclaimed young directors in British theatre. Recent work includes Piaf (Donmar / West End), Three Days of Rain (West End) and the award-winning The Pride (Royal Court).
