Tremblay's play looks at the themes family, friendship, religion, etc through the premise of a woman having won Savings Stamps that are redeemable for goods in a Stamp Catalogue. The theme of the superficiality of these various relationships comes to the fore when Germaine throws a party for the other women in the cast--family and friends--to help her moisten the stamps to seal them in the book pages. The thematic examinations ends with the theft of her stamps.
