Member's Play about King Solomon, 8 pm Nov. 13

November 11, 2009

"The Last Days of King Solomon," a play by NPC member Anthony Gallo, will be presented at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13, in the Murrow Room.

Gallo says the two-act “black comedy ” is about doubt and faith during the latter days of Solomon, long-time ruler of militarily and economically powerful Israel . The legendary monarch, who holds together a diverse nation by shrewd domestic and foreign marriages, has lost God’s favor. He is the laughing stock of the nation because he supposedly can not even see the temple he built. Foreign countries wait to attack the borders, and the twelve tribes of Israel are at odds. Division and conflict everywhere! What will become of his world?
