"The Man in a Case" is a play about possibility. Byelinkov, an aging school teacher irritated and alarmed by reality, and the always laughing Varinka are in search of a life together, but can't seem to get beyond the cases they've built around themselves. They are as others see them, believing that they "deserve not to be different . . ."

The Manageress - Diana Zuger
It is the early 1960's in a small hotel room near King's Cross railway station London. It is 1 pm exactly on a winter's day. Her knight in shining silver armour. That's what the girl was looking for; someone who knew about romance and about love. He already had a home life, but she was willing to overlook that shortcoming. She had met him at the office and now after several innocent lunch hours in the park she was on her way with him to a hotel. Oh but he loved her - he had said so. He had arranged for the room but he had not told the hotel manageress the truth about her. Sometimes the truth has a way of catching up with you. . .
