Ten Percent is an original Arabic script by UAE based playwright Mohammed El Sawi. Darwish is the owner of a company that fulfills wishes that people desire. Any desire and any wish. To be a famous star, to be rich, to be loved or more. But there is one price for those who want their wishes fulfilled. They have to pay 10% of whatever they wish to Darwish. A mere 10%. Will people agree to that? What are the consequences of this 10%? The play raises the question – Which is more important – Desire and hopes? or dignity and free will?
