Trouble in the Works: A worker tells the boss that the men in the mill are satisfied with working conditions—its the products they object to.
The Black and White: Two old buddies, with little to do and nowhere to go, make small talk over soup in a crowded milk bar.
Request Stop: A brief monologue by a "lady" waiting in a bus queue. Is it her fault if the men she asked directions of should race to the wrong conclusions?
Last to Go: A coffee stall. The attendant and an old newspaper seller chat idly about a variety of pointless topics which probably mean little to either of them.
Applicant: Applying for a job, a young man is given a bizarre psychological test which leaves him gasping, blushing and rolling on the floor in shock.
Interview: During an interview, the proprietor of a pornographic book store confides that the "security police" have dossiers on all his customers—and so does he. After all, they're a pack of Communists.
That's All: "Mrs. A" and "Mrs. B" chatter on about a third party who used to come around on Wednesdays, but changed to Thursdays, because she wanted to go to her old butcher shop—or something of that sort.
That's Your Trouble: Two men in a park engage in a heated discussion about where a aman carrying a sandwich board will feel the strain first—and most.
The New World Order: Two men stand above a third—tied and blindfolded—talking to each other, but addressing the third man. The insinuations and threats about what will become of—and what will be done to—this third man, represent the forces in today's world which stifle freedom in its many forms. The fear and uncertainty conveyed by this short piece powerfully reminds us that the evils of the world will always try to conquer us if we don't heed the warnings.
