  §  Dramatis Personae Griffin (m), a philosopher; Empty (m), a philosopher; Camille (f), a feminine disruption; Simone (f), a feminine disruption.

  §  Synopsis “Griffin and Empty, characters in an absurdist tragicomedy, sit in the void and comment wittily about the meaninglessness of their lives. Camille and Simone, who have come to correct the gender imbalance in the play, disrupt their world.

  §  Comment “This play lightheartedly looks at life, love, feminism, and the precise nature of tiaras.”

  § Themes absurdism, battle of the sexes, feminism, love, male bonding, meaning, tiara, void
