Osama The Demented
This four-act play, though infused with herbal remedies, is also a comedy/parody, rather a medley of politics, religion, madness! A futuristic play in its essence of time, place and events, in a sense, that the setting is a decade later after the tragedy of "9/11". Osama, his wife, a mulla and a beautician are hiding in a cave in the northwest of Afghanistan, ringed by the clustering range of Pamir Mountains. All four characters are afflicted, paranoid of death or captivity. Osama's wife is an herbalist, concocting all sorts of pastes or potions for healing and sustenance. Osama has become a carpet weaver. The mulla is mired deep in doubts about religion, accusing Osama of zeal and bigotry.
