The plot centers on Nina Leeds, the daughter of an Ivy League professor, who is devastated when her adored fiancé is killed in World War I, before they have a chance to consummate their passion. Ignoring the unconditional love of the novelist Charles Marsden, Nina embarks on a series of sordid affairs before determining to marry an amiable fool, Sam Evans. While Nina is pregnant with Sam's child, she learns a horrifying secret known only to Sam's mother: insanity runs in the Evans family and could be inherited by any child of Sam's. Realizing that a child is essential to her own and to Sam's happiness, Nina decides on a "scientific" solution. She will abort Sam's child and conceive a child with the physician Ned Darrell, letting Sam believe that it is his. The plan backfires when Nina and Ned's intimacy leads to their falling passionately in love. Twenty years later, Sam's "son" Gordon Evans is approaching manhood, with only Nina and Ned aware of the boy's true parentage. The meaning of the title is suggested by the aging Nina in a speech near the end of the play: "Our lives are strange dark interludes in the electrical display of God the Father!"--Wikipedia.com

From the Back Cover: In Old New York, there is a truce between the races. The poor whites stick to their tenements and their kind and the poor blacks stick to theirs. There is a small neutral ground at the corner where the children play, innocent of the roles they will have to assume later in life, It is here that the young black boy Jim and the young white girl Ella strike up a friendship. Time passes. That neutral ground was too small for them, Ella has rejected Jim and taken up with Mickey, a young tough. Jim has taken refuge in his studies, which earns him the hostility of other blacks, as trying to pass for white. The years go by. Ella is an outcast. After losing Mickey's child out of wedlock she has no use for him, rejecting him even as he dumps her. Then Jim, struggling to pass the law bar with little success, admits he has never stopped loving her. His honest warmth and friendship draws her to him and Ella marries him, which angers both races. They leave the country, but it does not help. No matter where they go, Ella is convinced she is being judged for marrying a black man, and begins a horrifying descent into madness. Worse, she is determined to take Jim down with her, to hold on to the one thing she still loves in her lunacy. Even if it destroys him
