A successful New York Play director has undergone an emotional and personal crisis. He is trying to get back on his feet and his friends are reaching out to try to help him. Unfortunately, people have never devised a system of really communicating with each other, as he talks to first the janitor, then the young girl who rescued him from alcoholism, then the woman he is in love with, then the producer and friend who is putting on his come back play, and finally his son. He, and they, fail to really understand the other's needs. They even fail to understand their own needs. This failure is played out at all levels.

KURT ENGELS- In middle forties, graying slightly; hawk-like look. A man who has known trouble but who has survived it. 

SAM PARRISH- An old man, middle sixties, approaching seventy; totally uneducated but with pride. 

JANIE- A beautiful young girl in her early twenties. As the play says, stunningly beautiful but with a hurt look in her eyes. 

SECOND GIRL- Attractive young girl in her early twenties who would be a friend of Janie's. 

ELAINE- Stunningly beautiful woman in early or middle forties, who, because of her complexion and figure, appears to be in her early thirties; charming.
