"Queen Esther's Dilemma"

In Samuel J. Bernstein's "Queen Esther's Dilemma," a new musical inspired by the biblical Book of Esther, the party includes Purim games, dancing, singing and, of course, the drinking of many cups of wine. In this theatrical rendering, Esther faces various difficult ethical problems as she strives to be a woman loyal to the interests of the Jews, as interpreted by Mordechai, and yet a person with strong pacifistic inclinations.
