The play is a one-act ”dialogue” which takes place between a man who is dying and a peaceful businessman who has missed his train. In other words, between someone who intensely lives the little time left to him and someone who is rich with time to spend idly and irresponsibly, waiting for the morning train and entirely absorbed in the usual affairs of life.

"We’re like so many puppets hung on the wall, waiting for someone to come and move us or make us talk."
– Luigi Pirandello, Henry IV

Pirandello (1867–1936)—the Italian playwright, novelist and short-story writer—was winner of the 1934 Nobel Prize for Literature. With his invention of the “theatre within the theatre” in the play Six Characters In Search of An Author, he became an important innovator in modern drama.
