For a Good Thing. A Play of Several Acts and No Intermezzo

Kamil, a not particularly reflective hero of this play, is just after his death faced with the question of what the good and the good life are. He gets the opportunity to do a good thing in one hour and thus avoid the Devil´s power. Kamil makes an effort using several personified ethical theories, but fails to find a clear and ultimate answer.
