Abstract: L-lnkwiet tas-Sur Martin is a one-act play about the impact of the City on the Village. The village represents tradition and conservatism, attachment to the old ancestral customs which are rapidly disappearing under the impact of city life which, being more cosmopolitan, is exposed to many foreign influences from which radiate new mental attitudes that are progressively eroding the core of the village community as people knew it in their younger days. It is a one-act play which was written by J. Aquilina and performed by his students several times at the University theater in Valletta. The play represents a conflict of mental attitudes to life as it affected the domestic habits and peace of mind of a good-natured, temperamental village man attached to his family traditions and customs and whose two lively daughters upset his tenor of life by some of the exotic fashions of modem life which they picked up from the two Sliema families they worked for as maids.
