The six-scene play follows an ongoing conversation between an artist and a critic, starting when the artist commissions a text from the critic, who in turn attempts to understand what the former wants from the project. The subsequent misunderstandings, agreements, and dissents cover everything from writing, art-making, and publishing to artistic paranoia, drinking in the afternoon, and Egyptian funeral practices.
