Tamar's Revenge is a play about the House of David, a family brought to its knees by lust, deception and ambition. David's sons, recently home from war, begin to wonder who will succeed their ageing father. One evening Amnon, his eldest son, hears a beautiful singing voice from his father's harem. He sets out to discover who owns this voice, setting in motion a chain of events that irreparably divides the ambitious sons of David.
