A man flees from his family and wanders about the world seeking answers. Finally he comes to a monastery whose monks act out the game of existential freedom, forcing them to confess belief in God to receive food. Religion is shown as a matter of habit or force, devoid of freedom, constructed to fill voids in the human heart.
"A remarkable play, an astonishing work of a great playwright's unique imagination...Although it has moments as madly entertaining as a Marx Brothers movie, this is a profoundly serious work about a man's hunger and thirst for happiness." - Boston Record American
