On October 8, Humanities Writ Large Visiting Faculty Fellow Kimberly Stern and Jay O'Berski, Assistant Professor of the Practice, Theater Studies presented Oscar Wilde's controversial play Salome. The informal staging featuring students, faculty, staff, and professionals.

Wilde once wrote: "If I were asked of myself as a dramatist, I would say that my unique position was that I had taken the Drama, the most objective form known to art, and made it as personal a mode of expression as the Lyric or the Sonnet, while enriching the characterization of the stage, and enlarging - at any rate in the case of Salome - its artistic horizon."

The result of that vision is this beautiful experimental piece.
