The seventeenth book of the King James Bible, Esther recounts a tale of two queens. Queen Vashti is the loveliest woman in the land, but when she refuses to come to her husband's banquet, she is banished from the kingdom. Hadassah is called to take her place - a beautiful young woman with a secret. Hadassah is Jewish, but her guardian warns her to keep her identity hidden. Taking on the name Esther - which means "hidden" - she moves in to the palace, but when a wicked man hatches a plot to rid the land of Jews, her guardian asks her to take on a terrible job. Esther must go to the king unasked - and if he does not extend his golden scepter, she will face the ultimate punishment. Can she rely on God to save her people - and herself? - (Summary by Rachel) Narrator: Rachel Queen Esther: Esther ben Simonides King Ahasuerus: Mark Penfold Memucan / The King's Servants: Mark Chulsky Mordecai: David Lawrence Haman: Adam Zeresh, Haman's wife: Adele de Pignerolles Harbonah, a eunuch: Glenn O'Brien File Editor: Rachel
