First performed in 1948, this political play concerns the end of the war when east European countries were beginning to face up to the realities of their political futures.  As an engaged writer Sartre wanted to bring such situations to the fore for discussion.

The play concerns the chicanery going on as the communist parties tried to wangle their way into power.  Hugo a communist is entrusted with the job of murdering Hoederer a politician who favours a middle way for his country, involving both right and left of the political spectrum

He and his wife Jessica move in on the welcoming Hoederer so that they are well placed to kill him.   When the play starts he is already dead so the question posed by the work is why he was killed not who did it.

Due to its sensitive nature there was considerable reticence to show Les mains sales even in socialist, communist countries.   Students with a political bent will be particularly interested in this work.
