- A group of Boys and Girls assemble to choose the parts they will portray in the play about to be presented.
- They can be anything they want to be - a procedure which is objected to by the Interrupter, who breaks in on them.
- When he is overruled, he elects to be a gangster and takes all their money.
- Soon the others, perhaps affected by his actions, begin to bicker and disagree until the producer's son implores them to stop.
- Deciding that the producer's son stands in the way of their selfish interests, the Boys and Girls drag him away, but he warns them not to lose sight of what's good for the whole group, not just for the individual.
- After his departure, things get worse and the Narrators are hard pressed to keep the peace.
- Then, quietly, the producer's son returns to assure them that as long as even one good actor remains on stage the play can be saved - no matter how hopeless it may seem.
- For the play is as long as the world, all of us are the actors and actresses, it is our play.
