A sixteen year old girl, sold as a bedwarmer to a dying king, finds home and hope with the
colorful women of his house.
King David’s last concubine, struggles to come to grips with her new palace laundry duties and suspected lifelong virginity. Seeking guidance in the stories of the women in David’s life – from the famous Bathsheba and wise Abigail to the lesser-known Rizpah and others – Abishag grows in her understanding of the king and his God, while riding the adolescent roller coaster of crushes, homesickness, and the desire for independence. Bringing to life the themes of grace and hope available through God’s promises, this show has something for everyone!
