Solomon at Ingleside




A black comedy with more than a touch of slap-stick


As performed at the Kennedy Center, National Press Club, and Dramatists Guild of America

Monday, January 20, 2014    8:00 PM



Anthony E. Gallo

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.

The Seventh Street Playhouse and Eastern Market Studios are pleased to make three announcements.


The Tragedy of King Saul by Anthony E. Gallo is now available from Amazon.

Following 200 years of rule by judges or seers, the people of Israel demanded a king. God, speaking through Judge Samuel, warned against a kingship but eventually allowed the people to have their way. Saul was Israel's first king. The play deals with Saul's tragic kingship. He attempts to maintain his power, but comes into conflict with God, the prophets, the powerful Judge Samuel, children Jonathan and Michal, and above all the young man who will eventually replace him: the multi-talented soldier, poet, musician, politician, and religious David. The ingredients of this play make for great drama: murder, betrayal, compassion and love, want of power, depression, father/son relationships, wars, and jealousy



Charleston Revisited, our first full length motion picture, has been released by Eastern Market Studios and is now available from Amazon.
