I was waiting to hear whether the play I wrote, "Trial of the Monkey" won a local contest and I'm sorry to say that it did not. Congratulations to the winning play (announced next week). I still think that it's a good play with a socio-political message. I will post it on it's own website so that it can be read and enjoyed (and maybe even performed).

Update(12/25/07): I want to point out that the play can be viewed as a cute story about a monkey, even as a children's story, but it is really a satirical allegory for the xenophobic country of my origin. I think that it carries an important political message. It is one of three I'd like to write in this vein to capture different aspects of our society and culture. This one is about xenophobia and class struggles. The next will be about mass media and the destructiveness of a foreign policy based on ignorance. The third will be about the dark side of technological advances.
