This is a short one act play.


'Facing the audience, at the front of the stage, is a metal grille, which is not very thick or strong.  Behind the grille, the stage is divided into two parts by another grille the same as the first and at right angles to it.  A bulb with a white shade hangs on each side.  There is also a wooden bench in each side.'
