Casting Call for Song of Solomon Table-Read
This 6000 year-old play was performed on village greens across ancient Israel to encourage resistance of the unpopular King Solomon, who was ripping the country apart. It is a story very relevant to our world today! So let’s rehearse this play together using the translation, which is laid out as a script, in April Love-Fordham’s book “Dismantling Injustice.” We will come together with props and costumes, reading and acting it out together. The script will accommodate an impromptu cast of seven — and as many as want to be part of the harem. We will pause after each act to see what questions this ancient texts raises for us. Scripts, props, and simple costumes are provided.
