A dark tale of hubris, lust, and self-destruction as told by a man who famously fell prey to those same impulses in his own life. Oscar Wilde wrote his original interpretation of the Biblical story of Salome in French, and the play was so controversial that no theatre in England would produce it for nearly four decades.
