This play was published in 1948, but its timing is almost irrelevant. The characters are powerful pawns. The theme is the futility of ideals in the reality of the world's realpolitik. 'L'Enrenage' actually refers to the meshing of gears. The title's concept is the same as Charlie Chaplin used to spectacular advantage in 'Modern Times,' from which it may even have come. Lord Acton would approve. This play has never gotten its due.
