‘BORN IN EXILE’

SYNOPSIS
‘Born in exile’ is a plot reflecting the traditional setup of ordinary times. The play starts with Galani (Alan) and his wife Neli who are running away from protectors of the village and the dark forest. They are being chased because they stepped on a forbidden territory. The case is deteriorated when the wife to Galani (NELI) give birth in the dark forest, an act which is considered a taboo by the village tradition. After the birth of a child, Galani offers this ‘first born’ as sacrifice to the gods. Just at the end of Galani’s esoteric ceremony, protectors of the dark forest find them. The medicine man want to kill the baby who is born in exile and the father so that he marries the wife. Skampa comes to intervene and take the hostages to the king for a proper judgment as demanded by the tradition. When they are before the king, he orders to kill the baby who is born in the dark forest (exile) and the father Galani so that he marries the wife. The king, Skampa (chief of king’s staffs) and the Medicineman are in love with this beautiful woman but who maries her? At this point, fate begins to unfold: king orders the death of the village protector (Medicineman), Medicineman comes back to kill the king, soldiers with orders from the king comes to kill the Medicineman and Skampa marries the wife and becomes the new king after hearing from Neli that the husband and the baby have been killed. What happens next? Will the village still remain protected and intact?
