Translated by Michal Lázňovský
This bitter comedy by an author from Benin can be read as a burlesque, an absurd drama, an existential detective story, a magic ritual, or all of the above at once. A Yoruba mask of a weeping girl dramatically alters a meeting of three old friends and like in Pliya’s other plays the past is then confronted with the present, reality with dreams, and memory with reality. Le Masque de Sika is the third African drama published in the Contemporary Play series – again on the occasion of the Creative Africa festival.
