The play by Jean Paul Sartre begins slowly, with ultra realistic descriptions of moving angles of perspective. The direction evolves into characterization after the picturing of one bare foot. The primary action of the play revolves around Nagaro, George and the only female character. The other characters play a centrifugal role to the brutal openness of the racist and sadistic speech Nagaro directs at the Malay George. Eventually it becomes clear that the worst villain of the play, the female character, intended to make millions off of the misfortunes of everyone else in the play. Jean Paul Sartre more than likely cut out the last page to keep the ending of his play positive.

I give it a "pleu." Arlette Elkaim Sartre wrote the introduction to the work. There was so much more involved with the play than can be described in one short evening. Also, the hard copy of the play is elusive, and I had no way to take notes when I read it.
