Out at Sea

by Polish absurdist

Sławomir Mrożek

"Out at Sea" is an one-act parable about the civilization of totalitarianism. Three starving men stuck on a raft agree that one must be eaten to save the other two. They all wear impeccable dress suits, so it is only right that they proceed in elaborately formal ways. Each man's language reflects his physical state and degree of power. The Fat Castaway is a blunt manipulator. The Medium Castaway is more tactful but eager to be on the right side. The Thin Castaway is anxious and placating. The Medium and Thin men both want "something to eat," but it is their overbearing companion who notes, "We must not eat something but someone."

Should they draw lots? No, free elections are better: they will campaign then vote. What follows is ruthless electioneering.
