Additional Info

Produced on ABC TV, this play strikes a satirical blow against our society and fear of involvement. A middle aged couple have insulated themselves from the world. Wally creates totally useless inventions and Frances gives her paperweight collection a daily dusting. Their only visitor in years is a fireman who answers Frances' false alarms when she thinks Wally's inventions are burning up. The fireman tries desperately and unsuccessfully to awaken them to their responsibility in life. A vivid, comic presentation of non involvement.
