The story of The Swordfish, Then the Concubine is based on that of the classical Malay literature work Sejarah Melayu. Attack by swordfish, feudal obeisance, punishment by impalement and war … the play is full of historical and mythological elements. Playwright Kee Thuan Chye also alludes to contemporary social predicaments, political games and “secret codes”. This story transcends time and space, merges reality and parable, and chronicles the inseparable fate that binds rulers and subjects.
