The Moabitess reimagines the story of Ruth told from her point of view. Giving voice to her journey from Moab to become the wife of Boaz. The story told here is set in the bloody time of Judges when Israel lived as twelve tribes.


The story follows Ruth as she is determined to follow Naomi back to her home near Bethlehem-Judah. We see the two women, unprotected by men, as they make their painful way in a often lawless world.

Told through the eyes of the Moabitess we see her life play out aganist the backdrop of the coming war with the Philistines.

Ruth finds both joy and pain as she watches her adopted family struggle in a unpredictable world.
