Salome Pre Show Discussion Location Changed

Media Contact:

Director of Marketing

PICT discussion series moves to Schenley Park for Salome

Pittsburgh, PA – June 12, 2008. Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre will hold free pre-show discussions for Salome on Wednesday and Thursday, June 18th and 19th, at 7 p.m. under the Schenley Plaza Oval Tent, across from the Stephen Foster Memorial.

The discussions are part of a regular series, featuring “Artistically Speaking” (sponsored by UPMC) on Wednesdays and “Behind the Scenes” on Thursdays in the week following the opening of each main-stage production. The discussions are hosted by PICT artistic director Andrew S. Paul, and the special guest for the Salome discussions will be Roger Doyle, composer and pianist for Salome.

Doyle studied composition at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, the Institute of Sonology at the University of Utrecht and the Finnish Radio Experimental Music Studio. He has worked extensively in theatre, film and dance, in particular with the music-theatre company Operating Theatre, which he co-founded with actress Olwen Fouere. Awards include the Program Music Prize at the 1997 Bourges International Electro-Acoustic Music Competition, France, and the Marten Toonder Award (2000) in recognition of his innovative work as a composer. Doyle is a member of Aosdána, Ireland’s state-sponsored academy of creative artists.

Oscar Wilde’s masterful poetic drama Salome is directed by Alan Stanford, with original music composed and performed by Doyle. The production runs June 12th through 28th in the Charity Randall Theatre at the Stephen Foster Memorial on Forbes Avenue in Oakland. DUQ-FM is the media sponsor for Salome.

Corruption, sensuality and self-indulgent hedonism reign in Herod’s kingdom; at the other extreme is Jokanaan – a vain, self-absorbed prophet. Salome is trapped between the fanaticism of Jokanaan and the decadence of society. When her advances are rebuffed by Jokanaan, Salome reacts by succumbing to her step-father Herod’s request that she dance for him. Herod offers her the world on a plate as payment, but she has something else in mind.

For more information, contact Melissa Grande at 412-561-6000 x203. Tickets for Salome are available by contacting ProArtsTickets at 412.394-3353 or online at
