Fate of A Cockroach – English Play

December 22, 2016

Fate of A Cockroach
English Play by Play Pen, Bengaluru

PlayWright: Tawfiq Al Hakim
Director: Salmin Sheriff

The Fate Of A Cockroach transports the audiences from a bathroom floor where cockroaches rule, to a hard-working, middle class couple’s morning ritual. When the husband relates to a cockroach’s struggle, neither wife nor family doctor can liberate him from his pact. He proves to be the playwright’s personified Cockroach.

In the cockroach kingdom, there are self appointed officials, so called ‘gurus’ of science and politics, who fail to come up with solutions to pressing problems. The king cockroach declares, ”In the whole of the cockroach kingdom, there is no cockroach that feeds another, everyone strives for their own daily bread.” Sound familiar? Have we become like cockroaches?

The playwright draws parallels between the two worlds. In both the worlds the women seem to be stronger, even though they are of the ‘weaker sex’.

A thought-provoking play.
