Set in an organized society in a developing country, Inkhokhotsazana tells the story of ruler Mfalme who has banished his wife, Inkho believing she betrayed him by ‘sleeping’ with her step-son Leo. As it turns out, Mfalme’s chief advisor, Pom, has orchestrated the ruse as revenge against Mfalme for snatching Inkho from him. As Mfalme’s cousin and most trusted advisor, Pom’s accusations are accepted without question and thus create a case of ‘the enemy within’.  Mfalme’s anger and jealousy against Inkho spreads oppression and cruelty to all the women of the land and by royal decree, men are permitted to abuse their women.  In a bid to bring Mfalme to his senses and punish Pom, the women of the land revolt by forming the Women’s Liberation Front and focusing the eyes of the world upon them, including the journalist, Gloria, from the neighboring country of Noteba.  Reminiscent of Greek classics and Shakespearean tragedies, Kenyan playwright Edwin Mulima Omusundi brings home the struggles that still exist in modern times when old ways collide with new. $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $65 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
