background image Comforters of the characters: - Biscuit - Painkiller - Repetition – time - Stories  - Whistle – other people Themes: - The state of never-ending presence - Emptiness and loneliness  - Time is made up Truth of the play: - The meaning of our lives: seeking out comforts to distract from the end 
game. Cleaning, working, conversing, all of these are comforts we employ to 
distract us from the endgame of our lives. 
Endgame: Time and Order - “yesterday” and “once” were a time that had meaning and order - “now” there is no way of measuring and ordering time.  - “time” is an attempt to make sense out of the order of the day. All of the 
characters actions can be seen as a desperate attempt to control and order 
the day. Art fails, and words fail. Words as a way of interpreting experience 
are not reliable in this way (borrowing this concept from Tempest). Words are 
insufficient to describe the experience.
