The play "A Woman
Named Pembe", first staged by Kent Players was also produced by amateur groups
all over the country. There are also film and ballet versions of the "A Woman
Named Pembe". This play of Hidayet Sayın, like his other play "Topuzlu", touches
on social problems within the realities of the village and tries to reflect the
living conditions of our people.
In the play, in a
poor village, the "Woman Named Pembe" who is deserted by her husband with her
child is desperate with hopelessnes when she learns that her husband has married
a rich woman at a far away place and breaks down with her last hopes dying. Her
hatred for her husband, is from then on for all men. The old woman caught in the
throngs of ignorance does the one thing which should never be done and brings
her already fragile world totally down.
