Abstract:

This paper addresses itself to the select text based on the social critical art theory. Utilising the theoretical discussion on social criticism, the writers examine the ways in which the select play serves as a challenge to existing traditional practices. The writers use the select text as base for looking at the effectiveness of drama as a critical tool in society and how this tool has been used by the playwright in deconstructing and reconstructing his society. The writers conclude by asserting that cashing in on the Christian concept of love, the playwright presents varying perspectives on reconstructing his society based on his vision of mutual reconciliation and recognition of social-identities to outright overthrow of old systems.
