A Frozen Flower

A Frozen Flower represents today’s marriage, in which some people enter into hurried marriages based on wealth, education, and other material criteria, resulting in family disintegration, divorce, or death as a result of parental pressure and meddling in their children’s love lives. In this play, Clementine finds herself in a similar circumstance. Despite her feelings for Simon, her family pressures her to betray him and marry Gakire in exchange for a large bride payment and other benefits derived from the forced marriage. The couple’s existence came to an end in a tragic death and devastation. Such an event casts a bleak shadow over love in the minds of betrayed people like Simon, who have abandoned and rejected all things love-related.
