ECHOES by N. Richard Nash

A young man and woman build a low-keyed paradise of happiness within an asylum, only to have it shattered by the intrusion of the outside world. The two characters search, at times agonizingly, to determine the difference between illusion and reality. The effort is lightened by moments of shared love and "pretend" games, like decorating christmas trees that are not really there. The theme of love, vulnerable to the surveilances of the asylum and the ministrations of the psychiatrist, a non speaking part, seems as fragile in the constrained setting as it is in the outside world.

"Even with the tragic, somber theme, there is a note of hope and possible release, and the situations presented also have universal applications to give strong effect ... intellectual, but charged with emotion." - Reed
