Absurd Comedy Play: 'Mediocrity' by Anton Krueger

This comedy borrows elements from both the Commedia Del' Arte and Burlesque traditions to send up doctors, wives, brutality and death. It is for a general audience, though children may particularly enjoy the exaggerated, absurd characters.

Kenaf has just learnt that he's about to die and his life changes dramatically as he finally stands up to his domineering Wife, the bullying Brute and the condescending Doctor.

As it turns out, there has been a mistake on the part of the doctor, but Kenaf will never be the same.

The setting for this piece, being essentially metaphysical and absurd, takes place beyond the realms of realism and all that is required is a table and a chair.
