Play Summary

The King is devastated to discover that the queen is involved with an Elephant keeper. In order to avert the evil consequences of her infidelity, he is forced to sacrifice a cockerel to the gods. But he is a Jain, and non-violence is the fundamental principle of Jain faith. In desperation, he Substitutes a bird made of dough, which in turn has unexpected results. The myth is less concerned with actual violence than the morality of Substitution, which permits violence a wider and more subtle play by masking its true nature.
