Description The play and its themes are sufficiently universal for us to understand from it that any momentary catalyst can suddenly be the triggering of an outlet valve, whereby all past experience repressed unconciously by the individual boils over, eventually to resore a kind of necessary mental equilibrium, obviously a Freudian concept. Les Harding achieves this mental equilibrium at the end of his twenty-minute spiritual orgy and walks off stage in "a floating world".
