Summary (From the publisher):

It's at the circus where we first meet the characters: Joe Saul, Victor, and Mordeen are trapeze artists, and Friend Ed, a clown. As the play develops, in a cleverly fascinating structure, the setting changes from circus, to farm then to a ship. Each character remains true to their "role," although changing to accommodate the setting. Through all of this the conflict of the drama stays intact: Joe Saul wants to have a child to carry on his bloodline. After years of unsuccessful attempts with his young wife, Mordeen, he begins to dwell on his inadequacy.
