The play opens with Inspector Bhagwat interrogating The Maniac on the third floor of the police station. The Maniac constantly outsmarts the dim-witted Bhagwat and, when Bhagwat leaves the room, intercepts a phone call from Inspector Phadke. The phone call lets the Maniac know that a judge is due at the police station to investigate the interrogation and death of the anarchist. The Maniac decides to impersonate the judge, and successfully does so. He gets the police to re-enact the events, in the actual fourth floor room, and also involves a woman journalist who is trying to probe the events. The play ends with two alternative endings.
