Reading! New Play -- Untitled feminist rethinking of Salome

By Jan Levine Thal

Directed by Jan Levine Thal

Please come hear an early draft of a new play I'm writing, kindly hosted by Broom Street Theatre. Feedback optional but welcome

Readers include:
Joel Davidson, Bernice Hein, Paul Lorentz, Molly Maslin, Peggy Rosin, Bryan Royston, Brendon Smith, and Martha White.

In the Bible and subsequent re-tellings, Salome was a selfish, spoiled teenager and her mother was the villain of a story that involved a religious visionary, several deaths, and a beheading. My play has no religious figures and no beheading, though it does have violence. It is a drama, not a comedy, but the women are not the bad guys. If you want to know more, come to the reading.

Violence and swearing may make the reading inappropriate for some audiences.

Produced by Broom Street Theater at Broom Street Theater, 1119 Williamson Street, Madison
