The play opens in an empty room at the top of a six-story walk-up. Soon the new tenant arrives--and begins filling up the room with furniture. Piece by piece, stack upon stack, chairs and bureaus fill the room. Finally the man is crowded into a tiny square--isolated, lost, barricaded by four walls of his own furniture. In this peculiar way, he has cut himself off from the world; he has created for himself a kind of death
