Summary:
Based on the tale from the New Testament, Herod is so infatuated with his stepdaughter, Salome, that he promises her up to half his kingdom if she performs the Dance of the seven veils for him. She performs the dance and to Herod's chagrin, requests the head of John the Baptist on a platter. In Berkoff's interpretation, the play is stripped down to its essential components, favoring simplicity in sets and props, thus highlighting Wilde's text.
