Salomé | Synopsis | Royal Shakespeare Company

Even though Salome was published in 1893 in Paris, it was not until 3 years later when it was finally performed. It told the story of Salome, stepdaughter of Herod Antipas, who requested the head of Jokanaan as a reward from him. During its performance, Wilde has been locked in the prison for sodomy and gross indecency.
