translator Edward Rothert
synopsis The action of the play takes place at a seaside resort and involves representatives of literature, the arts, science, and technology. From a simple story of an engineer and his young wife rubbing shoulders with a famous writer, a professor and a priest, the central idea emerges. The idea is that in the world where traditional values are threatened, it may be the technocrats who will prove the most rewarding readers and help to create new pattern of human relations. The technocrats are characterized as newcomers to the arts, not spoilt by the complexities and sophistications of contemporary literature.
