這是一個無人的編輯室。牆上有一封來自該出版社負責人的公告,公告上說明了,這個一直以來以僅出版各種形式「自傳」而自豪的出版社遇到了難題,他們收到了一本名為《自傳》的詩集,且作者並未署名。負責人擔心社會輿論會怪罪出版社企圖將該詩集的意識型態套用到所有讀者身上,所以要求編輯們特別用力地編輯這本詩集。 場中有四張桌子,第一張桌子為左派男性,第二張桌子為右派男性,第三張桌子為女性——有右派有左派,第四張桌子不知道是誰的,看起來像某個初次校稿的人的工作桌,卻也像是該書作者的工作桌。

This is a editorial office.

There’s a announcement from the chief of this publisher explained that, since they received a narrative poem title “Autobiography” by an unknown author, all the editors are required to edit this poem based on their gender and ideology with great efforts. 

There are four desks: the first one belongs to leftist male editors; the second one belongs to rightist male editors; the third one belongs to female —who come from both left and right wing— editors; the forth one belongs to unknown, either the first proofreader of this book or the author him/herself.
