Adaptation is a contest, played like Parcheesi, in which the contestant advances or is sent back through the seven ages of man. The play creates a picture of man from birth until death, with all its madness, with all its familiarity, and with all its nonsense.

Next is set in an Army Induction Center, where an overweight, overage and overwrought draftee has reluctantly reported for his physical after being mistakenly called by the draft. A battleof-wits is waged between Marion Cheever, determined to avoid military service, and the career officer, just as determined to sign him up.
