Set in a courtroom during a murder trial, an unusual feature of the play is that members of the audience are chosen to play the jury. The court hears the case of Karen Andre, a former secretary and lover of businessman Bjorn Faulkner, of whose murder she is accused. The play does not directly portray the events leading to Faulkner's death; instead, the jury must rely on character testimony to decide whether Andre is guilty. The play's ending depends on their verdict. Rand's intention was to dramatize a conflict between individualism and conformity, with the jury's verdict revealing which viewpoint they preferred.

Role # 1 - Karen Andre Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Former secretary and lover of the dead Bjorn Falkner and was proud to be his mistress. She is accused of killing him in a jealous act of revenge. First impression: to handle her would require the services of an animal trainer, not an attorney. She has a profound, inexorable calm, but underneath has a tense vitality, primitive fire, and an untamed strength in the defiant immobility of her body. She has the elegance of a woman that does not give much thought to her clothes, but rather she is one who knows she can make any rag look attractive and does it unconsciously.

Role # 4 - Larry 'Guts' Regan Submit yourself for this role

A gangster who loves Karen Andre. Although he lives outside the law, his sense of honor is on display at every turn. The way he regards Bjorn Faulkner, the way he treats Karen Andre, and the efforts he makes to protect them, all bespeak an attitude toward life that matches that of the two lovers. Regan's gangland exploits are played for humorous effect during the trial, but at bottom his role is serious and essential to the plot.
