The play passes in the 1930's Paris. In a narrow and a dirty street, a beggar has been begging money from a rich woman. After they talk for a while, the beggar discovers a secret of the woman. Beggar's Prophecy has a play within a play. The inner play has psychological significance for the characters in the outer play. There is some parallel between the two plays. This two-act play by the author Mehmet Murat ildan was first published in Ankara (in Turkish) by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey in 2001.
