God’s Eyebrows: A Contemporary Retelling of King Saul and the Witch of Endor

About This Show

Poet/performer Alexander Nemser is King Saul in God’s Eyebrows, a contemporary retelling of King Saul and the Witch of Endor. Picture Larry David as a Trumpian King Lear, monologuing in his personal prison of filth as he witnesses the effects of his own brutal policies. Making sorcery illegal then relying on it to save him from his rival, soon-to-be king David, a pleading King Saul visits an illegal healer to raise the dead prophet Samuel on the eve of his own unraveling.

Presented by Montreal’s Scapegoat Carnivale Theatre in association with New Ohio Theatre’s New York City Independent Theatre Film Festival, and with dramaturgy by Co-Artistic Director Joseph Shragge, God’s Eyebrows is part of Montreal’s Scapegoat Carnivale’s Soliciting Prophecy initiative. Lena Rudnick directs.

The digital short film will be screened in-person Sat., Feb. 12, 2022 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the New Ohio Theatre and streamed on-line Feb 14-20, 2022.
