In this play, Mr. Galbraith was holding a banner: "MOAB SHALL HOWL OVER NEBO".
This is a quotation of the bible - Isaiah 15:2, translating: He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: "Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off."
"The Celebration" by Anton Chekhov (translated by Eric Bentley), directed by Jamie Sievert.
Chekhov wrote a number of one-act plays. They are generally farces and "The Celebration" is no exception. A bank president is derailed in his attempt to celebrate the bank's anniversary by an insolent employee, a frivolous wife and a demanding client.Cast:
