"The Cave Dwellers explores the adventures of some homeless people who are camping out on the stage of an abandoned theatre that is about to be pulled down for a housing project. One who calls herself "the Queen' is the ruin of a former actress. "The King' used to be a celebrated clown. "The Duke' was once a prizefight champion. "The Girl' (she is too young to have been famous at anything) is a homeless, frightened wretch who comes in off the streets. Although food is scarce and the cold is congealing, the characters have glowing spirits and wonderful memories of their triumphant days"--Pub. website.
