Waiting for the Kick

Oscar Wilde's Salome is reset in an after-hours nightclub full of off-duty strippers and mountains of cocaine- and it's a rock opera with a majority trans/non-binary sex worker cast.

Director Statement

This is a feminist retelling of Salome- retold not as a story of a man in power led astray by a teenage temptress, but of a young girl caught in an impossible situation in a world where patriarchy forces women to objectify both themselves and others. And yet, in spite of everything, young queer folk discover themselves and loves- irrepressible as dandelions growing out of a sidewalk.
