about

The Biblcal story of the death of King David is a powerful drama of courtly intrigue (I Kings, ch.1,2). The Temple uses the characters and circumstances of the story as the basis for a romantic comedy. As King David lies dying, Abishag, a fair maiden, is brought into the palace to lie with him because "his body gave off no heat." David's two sons,Solomon and Adonijah are engaged in a bitter struggle to succeed to the throne of Israel. Abishac becomes involved and wins the love of Solomon and an honored place in the palace. This unusual play will delight the sophisticated reader.

An additional feature is "The Life of King David in Context."
