Civil war and foreign invasions... Courtesans, cannibalism, and mass crucifixions... And an unfortunate incident with a citrus fruit...

Alexandra of Judea is an epic true story of the Hasmonean Dynasty - the house of Maccabee. A woman of faith and courage, Alexandra survives political intrigues and two murderous husbands to rule as the last queen of the independent kingdom of Judea, with the help of her ally - Cleopatra III of Egypt. The conflicts of their time echo down to the present-day crisis in the Middle East in this fast-moving, action-packed tale of an important - and little known - period of history.

"This epic is a considerable achievement. The author tells a fascinating and at times exciting, not to say complex story well... Altogether it is a story which convincingly shows us the power of ruling women in the middle eastern civilisations of the time; after viewing it we may well revise our opinions as to the impact of women on the history of antiquity...." -- Dramaturge, Theatre Royal, Plymouth, England
