Slow Dance on the Killing Ground
The three characters in the play must answer for a killing; two of which have been committed and the third which is contemplated. The reasons for the killing implicate the world our society has created — Hanley's "killing ground" for they share the guilt. How the characters, (a young, misanthropic Negro man; an unwed, pregnant girl; and a middle-aged German refugee) resolve the agonizing circumstances in which they find themselves, provides an incisive look at contemporary America.
