Written in 1968, this is an excerpt from a play reflecting the playwright’s interest in politics, history, and the dangers of political power, as well as his interest in drama. It is, in part, a thought experiment exploring how power might be seized in the United States with the help of "modern" technology. But, it is mostly a gripping story.
