A poignant allegory.
Two kids, two ruined lives, so many fairy tales. Far too many fairy tales. So many that after a while you may not be able to put up with them. But these kids have to, because it is their lives. You are just the audience.
Esme: I’m not a child.
Hüso: Prove it.
Esme: I’ll prove it.
Esme: I’m just not!
Hüso: Then let me kiss you on the mouth once.
Esme: Go ahead.
Inspired by actual events, Windows is an original work by Ayse Bayramoglu which is both beautiful and confronting, giving the audience a glimpse into the lives of two very different children, the relationship that they have, and the stories that they share.
-Mick Pacholli, Theatre Critic
It is filled with rich cultural themes, stories around arranged marriage, dowries, poverty, and more sinister female subjugation.
