A nerdy, technophobic librarian clutches in his sweaty hands the detonator that will obliterate the library if his beloved card catalog is carted away. He is pitted against a harried police negotiator in this fast paced debate on society's obsession with computers. Jason Alexander and Peter Falk starred in the California premier.
"Kalcheim has written fine, funny parts.... His ending is a coup de theatre that's both logically satisfying and genuinely startling." - Time
"A bomb threat play ... fueled by the librarian's primary fear: that the printed word will soon go the way of the buggy whip, and computers will suck us all into their maw." - Los Angeles Times
"Entertaining, thoughtful." - Hollywood Reporter
"Harry's not your typical terrorist; he's a bookish nerd who's taken all he can take of so called progress.... Similarly, Falk's Dicky is a fully dimensional character [in this] ... lighthearted drama." - Variety
