This two-act “black comedy with a little slapstick” is about doubt and faith during the latter days of King 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 this world?   Lust, greed, pomposity, seduction, perversion, revenge, betrayal, insanity, deception, horses, lies, murder, drink, theft, cannabis, idolatry, political instability, and excess wives play a role.    One character thinks all this might be troublesome. Many suggest that The Last Days of King Solomon makes for a good Midrash.
