King David, lauded by theatre legends Anne Bogart and David Henry Hwang (Tony Award Winner) during its classroom development at Columbia University, has taken on exciting transformations in form and content since the original October 2016 production. Now known as King David: The Original Musicless Musical, it is a dance-filled dramatic work wherein people are the instruments, poetry is the music, and the human body serves as the building blocks of the set. This piece is indubitably a treat for the eyes and ears alike.

This play explores the tragedy that befalls King David’s family in a way he never expects when his son, Amnon, rapes his beloved young daughter, Tamar. Will David have the strength to tell his daughter that his past actions are the cause of her pain? Through contemporary free verse poetry and dance we dive into David’s mind revisiting the mental battle fields of his past where the fate of his daughter is determined. King David: The Original Musicless Musical is a Bible & Penn production.
