Synopsis: 
King Herod is throwing a banquet. His step daughter/niece, Salome, steps outside for some air and is haunted by the prophetic voice of Jokanaan, who is being kept as a prisoner. When he is brought up, Salome is immediately drawn to him, who quickly spurns her as base and vile. Driven by her desire, Salome will stop at nothing to get the one thing she wants- a kiss from Jokanaan.

Please note that this production includes simulated scenes of self harm and suicide as well as themes of incest, sexuality and violence.
