Drama

The three main characters in this penetrating psychological study of frustration and loneliness spend an evening together in the kitchen of the cheap Johannesburg boarding house where they live. They are Milly, the kind hearted slovenly landlady; Don, a cynical student layabout engaged in a permanent attempt to find himself and analyze others; and Shorty, a dimwitted postman whose passions are boxing and silkworms. It is Milly's fiftieth birthday and, just jilted by the German lodger with whom she has lived for the last ten years, she asks the other two to join her in a wild birthday party a gesture of defiance to prove to herself that she too is alive and can have a good time. The others reluctantly agree.
