Abstract:

A few years ago Arthur Kopit was commissioned by a wealthy industrialist to write a play about the nuclear peril. This funny play is the result. It is about a playwright who sees himself as a Sam Spade like detective who is commissioned by a mysterious billionaire to write a play about the Impending Doom. The writer has two mysteries to solve: the truth behind the nuclear arms build up and the reason the eccentric croesus Philip Stone believes he is the man to write about it. There are loads of laughs along the way to the shocking conclusion.
