The strong characters of this musical are Shrek and his unwanted best friend, the Donkey. Shrek is the center of this whole musical, therefore everything he embodies has to be in a sense flawless.

    Welcome to the Land of Ogres It was the moment my world stopped. The moment the birds flew away for safety and little kids playing so noisily outside ran home to their beloved mothers. I can remember it clearly. “James, Yvonne. Your dad is very sick, he can’t cope living here anymore, and his mummy and granny have both died. That is why we’re moving to Scotland.” I could feel the hatred both my brother and I had towards my mum for saying something that was beyond our wildest dreams of…

One day, I stumbled out of bed as a familiar odor wafts up to my nose. It must’ve been yesterday’s dinner! I wolf down breakfast as I wonder why I could still smell the scent of Englishmen. As everybody knows, an ogre like me loves to take naps after breakfast. I doze off next to my big bag of golden coins. When I woke up, all that was left of my…

I struggled and kicked with feet, and then I was staring, horrified, into the enormous face of a ogre the color of death marched. I drew my sword. “Ah, the little brat, wants to play at being a bad boy?” the monster said in scorn. “Well, we’re tired of playing, kid. Now it’s time for you to die.” There was a low, wicked howl. Before I knew it, we were…

    Sofia Samatar’s “Ogres of East Africa” chronicles Alibhai Moosajee’s quest to collect information about East African ogres for his British employer. Samatar skillfully alternates between Alibhai’s official accounts of the ogres, intended for his employer, and his personal accounts etched into the margins of his catalogue. Samatar creates a two-sided story—one side intended to reach Alibhai’s employer and one side that will never be deciphered by him. The two sides of Samatar’s story represent…
