THE AGONY OF DAVID by Anthony E. Gallo .October 29 2012, 7:30 PM Lincolnia Center, Fairfax, Virginia . . This two-act tragedy of faith and sin is totally based on the life of David, second king of Israel, and pivotal to the two Davidic religions, Christianity and Judaism. David, once a shepherd boy and now the mighty King of Israel, rules the entire region after being crowned King of Israel in 1010 BCE.  He has put together a kingdom against all odds.  Even his enemies admit that he is God’s chosen. But this providentially endowed military and political genius, poet, spiritualist, harpist, sportsman, and dancer is beset by tragedy.  This husband of eight carefully chosen wives and father of seventeen children has proven to be a less than satisfactory father and husband, and while called upon to be the first to create a kingdom for God on earth, has incurred   wrath.  His is a life of faith and struggle reflected by conflicts with his God, political and military enemies,   family of origin, King Saul, wife Micah, and  children  Amnon, Abijah, Tamar, and Absalom.  THE AGONY OF DAVID attempts to show how ultimately David must face the tragic consequences of his decisions   but in the end is sustained by a remarkable faith and strength of inner character: No charge.  Agallo2368@verizon.netor 202 544- 6973 Questions:Agallo2368@verion.net or Lincolnia Center 4710 N Chambliss St, Alexandria, VA 22312(703) 914-0223 Cross Streets: Between and Beauregard St
