Abstract:
This collection of plays by Stella Kon with its reigning theme of youthful idealism and rebellion features traditional motifs and legendary icons in its presentation of challenging ideas concerning the young. "The historical "Asoka" and the contemporary "Emporium" portray the attempt to live acccording to high ideals in a materialistic world. "The Naga in the Swamp" can be viewed as an allegory of political reform. "Kumba Kumba", set in the fabled Dreamtime, is about a non-conformist dreamer in conflict with his society and "In the Repair Shop", is about a boy who has to rebel against his perfect parents." -Emporium and other plays by Stella Kon.
