Three one -act plays of different writers with common thematic shaft: the problem of communication of the modern man. In the first one-act play, we see three people, two women and a man having struggled for love and conflicted among them to win the joy of life. A vain struggle as the pursuit of happiness even through love is an exhausting game, lost at the very beginning. In 'Zoo Story', the writer shows the difficulty of communication between human beings, the isolation of man in himself, and his desperate need to get away from the technocratic world in which he lives where people live unhappy and alienated. Finally, in 'The Chairs', we follow a man and a woman at an advanced age trying to communicate with themselves, with each other and with their environment addressing to a steadily increasing number of empty chairs.
