‘Salome’ by Oscar Wilde Directed by Gary Wall
Salome is Oscar Wilde’s twist on the biblical story of Herod, Herodias and Salome, This richly worded story with flamboyant imagery, tells of a lovely young girl Salome, her step-father Herod’s obsession with her, and Salome’s infatuation with the prophet John the Baptist (Jokanaan). What price will Herod pay to watch the dance of the seven veils? Lusted after by one powerful man and rejected by another, a young woman avenges herself … setting up a deadly chain of events!
‘Dead Man’s Bells’ by Méabh de Brún Directed by Joanne Keane
This dark comedy is a gothic, rural tale of inheritance, rivalry, and misdeeds, unreliably told by three sisters. Written by Máebh de Brún, award winning Irish playwright, the play is laced with black humour and quick wit, a worthy winner of the DLI/ADCI Playwriting Award. A story of three sisters, one brother, and a farm that’s up for grabs, with a balance of dark and the craic onstage in a journey of familial bickering and twisting tales.’ Michelle Crean.
There are misdeeds … there will be consequences!
