"Men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts."
As the Butler sets out the breakfast things, through the floor rises a black spherical chair, enter the white membranic mass of the Village Guardian acting as though it has delusions of grandeur!
Yet have you observed within this little scene, how the Butler pays no heed the the Village Guardian. In fact he pays no regard to "it," there is not fear, no emotion whatsoever!
Finally there are the curtains surrounding the screen and stage, they have been made to look theatrical. All the world's a stage as No.2 then makes his entrance.....through the floor of his office!
Be seeing you
