A musical adaptation by the Tony Award-winning writers of RAGTIME and ANASTASIA of the 1994 film that starred Albert Finney.

When he attempts to present an amateur production of Wilde's SALOME in the local church hall, he must face the forces of bigotry and shame over a love "that dare not speak its name." But the redemptive power of theatre changes his life and gains him the support of his true friends.
