The play is set in the future where mindless happiness is universal; where babies are not born but decanted from bottles; where human frustrations are eliminated by happiness drugs. Into this society comes John, a sensitive, human throwback. His relationships with the inhabitants provide a provocative and pertinent questioning of modern values.
