Abstract

In this play, a peasant called Oko accuses Sako, another farmer, of letting his cow graze on Oko's grass. While Oko's wawashii (bold) wife offers to help him rehearse his lawsuit, she secretly hopes to dissuade her husband from bringing it to the local steward. The rehearsal satirizes the oppressive feudal justice system as the domineering wife and steward role overlap.
