A character in the play, Good God of Manhattan, is on trial for plotting the murder of two lovers. Jan and Jennifer, and for having killed Jennifer in a bomb attack on their love-nest. During the trial the story unfolds, through flashbacks, that love has no place in the social order. The meeting of Jan and Jennifer at first appears banal, but their love intensifies and becomes all-consuming. The drama examines the relationship between men and women, and if ideals make sense in a “practical” world.
