One of the conflicts about the play from a theatrical standpoint relevant to staging is that the structure of the play is unorthodox.

  • Some of the 46 scenes are no more than a few lines long.
  • The setting covers decades of time and half a globe of locations as the hero runs from the heroine.
  • The characterization of Moo is both heroic and victimized.
