“Soundbite to be specified”





Kronos Productions


25th October 2012, 18:00, Assembly Rooms, North Bailey, Durham

Thursday 25th - Saturday 27th October

This October Kronos Productions bring their critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe 2012 sell-out production of Oscar Wilde’s once-banned ‘Salome’ to the Durham stage.

“a skilful production that flows from start to finish” - Gary Flockhart ( The Scotsman)

Performed in Lord Alfred Douglas’ original English translation, the play follows the eponymous anti-heroine, the infamous stepdaughter of the Tetrach Herod, observing her descent into an obsession from which she must take desperate measures to escape, culminating in a gruesome and fatal request.

Set in a 21st century rebel camp in the Middle East, Kronos’ gripping and violent spectacle immerses the audience within the setting on the intimate closed Assembly Room stage, focussing on power struggles, the dangers of unchecked sexuality, the exploitation of women and their need to define themselves in an intensely misogynist and objectifying environment.

“Well paced, tense and engrossing” - Daisy Cummins ( The Tab Durham)

“The acting was faultless” - April Elisabeth Pierce (EdFringeReview)

“Moments of unbearable intensity”

Alex Eades (Edinburgh Guide)

Seats are limited due to our intimate setting so whether you were lucky enough to see the production in Edinburgh or not, this is not an experience to be missed.

Admission: £5.50(£5)
