These two one-act plays, even though written in different periods, have a common point: they refer to the social phenomenon of woman's oppression and explore the human loneliness, lack of communication and the weakness of reaction in the way of life imposed on a man by people and situations uncontrollable. In the first one- act play a couple and young men are getting trapped in an elevator. The compulsory coexistence in a small and stuffy place and the catalytic presence of the young man, a person free from prejudices, and conventions, discloses the problems which exist between the couple, brings down the myth of the happy couple, and makes them throw off the repressed emotions that hide inside them. The man seems weak lacking initiative in front of the revolt of the woman, ready to deny his own ideas, till the end when he remains frightened in front of the mirror of his true self. In the second one- act play the story turns round a conventional family. The mother, oppressed during all her life by a despotic husband, wants to marry her daughter with a middle-aged retired and drunkard officer, without being interested for her daughter's feelings. Finally she achieves her aim offering her daughter as a sacrifice in an easy life.
