Based on a novel by Stefan Heym

King Solomon commissions Ethan the Scribe to write the official history of King David

 

Based on a novel by Stefan Heym

Adaptation by Roee Chen

Directed by Yevgeny Arye

 

In return for the finest cooking in the land and the wages of a minor prophet, Ethan must write a

proper record, full of glory and battles, statecraft and honor – a tribute to David and, of course, to Solomon, his heir. But as Ethan explores the story, he finds another life hidden behind the iron curtain dividing past from present: the story of a David who seduced, lied, bragged, and plundered his way to power. Ethan wonders: which life should be reported in the King David Report?

"King David Report is a good lesson in theatre – and a refreshing performance – and a reminder that history judges events differently than what rulers expect… go, remember, and enjoy"
