The Frog is a story about all of us, those living in our time – a time full of misunderstanding, loneliness and the search for love and purpose.
The play has an almost “surgical” approach in the way it assesses the time in which we live. There are characters that cannot find themselves in this transitional period and time of changing values.
The problems it addresses are the same or of fairly similar nature, be it in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia or Serbia. One of the main issues is the lack of communication and the inability to hear other people's opinions. The play has an excellent point to it: we tend to blame others for the bad things that happen to us, failing to seek ways to change them ourselves.
The bad quality of life and the situation we are in, make us place responsibility on the government, the system, our boss, the manager of the company we work in, the supervisor, the coach or the head of the team, and not ourselves. It is important to get involved in our own destinies and stop feeling sorry for ourselves.
The Frog is a text written by a younger generation author, Dubravko Mihanović, from Zagreb. He won numerous awards for it, one of them being the Marin Držić Award for the Best Dramatic Text in 2004.
