A woman uses the keys of a dismantled, antique typewriter to write a manuscript. She makes little progress and is able to generate only three letters of the manuscript. The letters are t, h, e, which is the entire word for an article. The Proscenium is a satire on production and feminism and acts as an antithetical or opposition to male’s prolixity on the canvas of literary canon.
