Now he needs to pick a new queen and eventually manages to select Esther—a comely, young (secretly Jewish) woman who is a part of his harem.

The complete title is, "Final Solutions and Other Plays" by Mahesh Dattani. It is a series of plays written in book form concerning Hindu-Muslim religious tensions in India, religious bigotry and intolerance. The theme of Mahesh Dattani's Final Solutions is cultural hegemony.
