Mala, a young tourist lost in a strange country with an erroneous map, sees Lara sitting on a bench reading a black book. Mala manages to communicate her situation and ask Lara for directions. Strangely, she understands Lara's foreign language more and more as the play progresses. She senses that there is something mysterious about this place but doesn't comprehend what it is until it's too late. This poetic play is by the author of Specter, Ravenscroft
and other plays.
