This plat is really a comedy of ideas rather than conflict. Characters discuss ideas such as capitalism, social reform, male and female roles in courtship, and other existential topics in long speeches that resemble arias in an opera. The play's verbosity makes it unwieldy to produce full scale, so the Epistle in the beginning and the Revolutionist's Handbook at the end are usually not performed, and the scene in Hell, although containing the bulk of the play's philosophical musings, is often dropped.
