In this meta-theatrical farce, a character in a play realizes that he is an actor playing a character in a play and that the world around him, his words and actions have all been predetermined by a playwright. His sanity comes into question when he tries to convince the other charactrs of this revelation. With fascinating twists and turns, truth and reality become blurry, challenging the viewer’s perceptions.
