by Lillian Hellman
Lillian Hellman's character play takes us in a "predatory time" and in a family that rushed simultaneously with unsuspected greed, but also with an entrepreneurial spirit towards prosperity, profit, and new life horizons. What do the Hubert's yearn for, what they are striving for with wild zeal, ready to spend and forget moral inhibitions, family sentiment, and social rules – they want to get away from the draughts and limits of existence or to earn a lot of money? The conflict-shaken family in the American South has been swept away by the most important questions we persistently ask today: is happiness and wealth the same? What is the meaning of love in a shaken world? Does time or man impose values?
