Destination? is a play intended to arouse in the readers some reflections on issues of morality, professional ethics, creativity, and their relations to regulation and law. The readers are presented several conflicts that SPEEDY, the protagonist, encounters in his work environment of a taxi business. SPEEDY, a man of Chinese origin and a philosophical, creative thinker, identifies a source of the conflicts in the taxi business. He comes up a way to fix that problem, but it violates the regulations of the taxi company. The play thus brings forward an ethical issue. It leaves the question open whether it is ethical to break certain regulations of a company for which one works. The evolution of the play is also described.
