Adam awakes one morning to find himself alone and locked in a strange, sterile room with four beds. One by one, three more people join him — but nobody knows why they are there. With no apparent reason for their place in this new world, and a shortage of food and resources, the room becomes a microcosm of the human condition.
The play deals with how people respond to heartbreak and adversity in a world that seems callous and indifferent. Where greed and avarice are rewarded and violence is a fact of life — whether it is America, the world as a whole or a single, sterile room with four beds.
