This play as most creations by the Sicilian dramatist is impregnated by the philosophy of the relativity of the truth. A truth that hides inside us and another one that appears outside: Of that truth that we think we are and of that truth that the others believe we are. A truth many faceted, with respective reflections which fluctuate between reality and illusion, lead to deception and self-deception and cause the hilarity for the tragic, in depth, behavior of people. However, through this multiplicity, a human truth emerges causing compassion and leading to a sense of catharsis. Thus in the play the revelation of the characters is painful but also entertaining through a game of honesty, which is played with complete consistency. All the burden of the game falls into one character, called to shoulder the honesty that is to reveal the hypocrites and the scheming men and to behave as a really honest person.
