Esther: Free Purim Spiel

This version of the play is available to use as a free Purim script, provided that no ticket charges or donations are made in presenting the material. (However, if you charge or take donations or an offering, I'd like to be paid something.)

This play is intended to be faithful to the Biblical text, while still conveying the fun and humor of Purim. It contains original songs specifically designed for the play. It is hoped that in allowing the use of this material people will consider performing the complete play or my musical on Ruth.

You may also incorporate sections of the full script, if you believe a section of the material needs to be further developed (or you have more time).

MP3 files of many of the songs have been made which may help singers learn the tunes.

NOTE: In retrieving the material it is recommended that you retrive the material in a separate tab or window so that you will not exit from this page. If you do exit, using the back arrow will normally return you to this page.
