There is a kind of country, tiny, so small that it resembles a theatre set. It is inhabited two or three times per day by its people. The inhabitants are small as well. Even if they live under certain laws, they repeatedly call them into question, which leads them to fight violently with each other. This country is called ‘the Playground’ and its people ‘the Children’. When the Children go into the Playground, they discover and feel the ‘force of sentiment or human servitude’ – this is called ‘Playtime’.
