Biblical Connection

This story is an adaptation from the book of Esther . Although the names of the characters remain the same ,my version of Esther is set in the violent inner city of Jamaica against the political divide and classism that ghetto people have to grapple with everyday. In this version Xerxes is a Prime Minister not a King but needless to say corruption is still rampant among his ministers but in this version it is not the Jews that are being marginalized but the poor and impoverished ghetto people of the inner city.
