Description
This is a cerebral play that underlines the pettiness of a person lost among things (of an unnatural size), and much more: lost among ordinary people.

Summary
The progression of each scene coincides the crossing from one ward to another, the characters are metamorphosing. The normal people become cripples, and are losing their minds, and are going deaf, dumb and blind.

Excerpt
SCENE I A laboratory equipped with all the advantages of modern medicine. It appears to be a waiting room in a sanitarium, with four doors - one to either side of the stage and two against the back. The doors are marked in order, "0", "Ward 1", "Ward 2", and "Ward 3." The interior is dark. Stuffed people. A "New Man" is kept frozen in a trunk made of glass. He is a specimen of new technology, and above him are pinned up revelatory advertisements and newspaper clippings. Doctors and Assistants are dressed in black smocks, their faces cold and inhuman, and their eyes glassy. The patients are dressed in the striped overalls of the infirm. Both the patients and useless medical staff limp, though more so the former. The Doctor, enveloped in frosty mist, is seated in an elaborate chair with his back towards the audience. Only the nape of his neck shows during the play, though his chair is stirring from time to time. He seems to turn himself towards the audience sometimes, but he gives up. Neither in the intervals, nor at the end of the play this actor does not show up for cheers. His voice is unearthly... synthesized.
