Abstract

The play takes place in a log cabin among lumberjacks and a mysterious woman who does not speak. The language and behavior of the protagonists are coarse and crude, but upon closer examination, it becomes clear that sensitivity and gentleness are not lacking. Mitterer does not wish to shock with brutalities, rather, his intent is to arouse reflection on inter-human relationships and on men's relationship with nature.
