Three clowns who used to be partners in their youth come together again in an attending room, while waiting for an audition. They are old, outmoded and desperately in need for someone to employ them.
But the joy of reunion is gradually replaced by the anxiety of competition. Nicollo, Filippo and Peppino are fighting for an uncertain job. Apparently confident in their own talent, each of them tries to appear greater than the others.
The three retired clowns make use of their full arsenal: intimidation, hypocrisy, betrayal, malice, mockery and violence. They are, in turn, both victims and aggressors in a Beckettian, absurd world, with no exit: the absurdity of their circumstances, but also that of their language, gives rise to an endless row of comical situations.
They seek refuge in their memories to forget the angst of their current situation, remembering clown acts they executed together with great success. This way, they try to get rid of the cruel reality: at present, no one needs them anymore. The friendship that ties them together fails to suppress the craving for being recognized as the best.
