What is there in the darkness of a box that may reveal one’s deepest hopes and nightmares? A game of cat-and-mouse that is a compelling page turner for the stage! A self-effacing medical student, aspiring for affirmation in all the wrong places, finds herself working for a man of great reputation and personal power who challenges, excites, and stimulates in her visions of enduring happiness.

A taut exercise in psychological manipulation that is one of those rarities in the contemporary theater - a classically crafted play with well-delineated characters and a satisfyingly linear plot.
