"When one thinks of Oscar Wilde, one usually thinks of ‘The Importance of being Earnest’, ‘An Ideal Husband’, ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ and, perhaps, ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. Few people, if any, think of Salome. This is a chance to see a play which is rarely performed. It is a chance to experience the less trivial, less flippant side of Wilde but to experience the beauty his writing, nonetheless. Salome is seductive. Salome is sassy. Salome is sacrilegious. And when those three elements are found in a woman…. Something terrible will happen."

    For the first time I felt a play just did not come together. I didn't enjoy this play.

    Also I enjoyed the evening, when I was lying in bed I went over the play again in my mind, because I felt something was amiss in that play.
    Some of my criticism: (by my mentally delayed brain? Maybe that’s a male thing).
    Wasn’t Salome’s dance supposed to be one of the anker points of the play and not so much the lurching of Herodes over the young woman? I did not feel any urging of her Mother for John the Baptist’s head, nor the play’s focus on sexual passion.
    That’s it. Good night now.

    I didn't want to say anything bad, particularly with everyone else being so positive, so thank you Jo. I too didn't think much of the production. The actor who played Herod was quite good, but otherwise it felt like a not particularly good school play.

    Somehow the whole play did not come together for me. The very first play I have not enjoyed!

    I liked the play. It put a bit of context and motivation around what I assume was just a couple verses in the bible.

    For me and my understanding I really appreciate the concept of support payment of actors. Good meetup. Economical tea option was worth it to meet more people.

    Hi Niall, Jo, Mark and all the other fellow leisure seekers.
    I just got my ticket and would like to join you for dinner in North India. Are you willing to move you chairs a little closer to make a little room for me?
    Cheers Wil

    I'm looking forward to this and would love to catch up for dinner. Is it possible to have the mobile number of the person organising in case of problems or getting lost - thanks!

    • Bryon

      Hi Kathy, my number is[masked], yet I am only helping to arrange the tickets, and will not be at the theatre this time. Niall will be meeting you in the lobby and have the group tickets for everyone - he will send his mobile number out a few days before the show along with detailed instructions to meet together.
