play "The Other Room"

original title Drugi pokoj 
original language Polish 
playwright Zbigniew Herbert
title of translation The Other Room 
translator Halina Carroll
synopsis

A young couple are waiting for an old woman next door to die so that they can have her room. On the surface a bitter play about the way housing conditions exert pressure on people, their emotions, and their reasoning; in fact the play shows up the blind cruelty inherent in human relationships in general.
