In the play’s prologue, the “girl tractorist” is one of the fruit farmers who successfully makes a case that the disputed territory should be given to the fruit farmers instead of the dairy farmers who owned it originally, since they have a comprehensive plan to develop the land and make it more fertile. At one point she suggests that perhaps the laws should be reexamined to ensure that they are righteous, thereby introducing one of the play’s central themes—that justice and the law are not always one and the same.
