Annotation

Flawed utopia in which people do not age and rarely die. The play focuses on a man of the previous generation who is among the few who are old and the inept way the new generation deals with him. The third play in a trilogy on love in the twentieth-century. The others, neither of which are utopian, are Where Have All the Lightning Bugs Gone and Touch the Bluebirds.
