Annotation

Satire in a play on a women’s only future. Because men were warlike, God had removed all men and women had created a peaceful society. The play shows two older women who are bored, a vehemently anti-male woman, and a young woman who discovers a man in suspended animation. God blinds the anti-male woman so that she can’t see the man, and he and the girl go off together.
