  § Dramatis Personae Ben (m), 27, a lawyer; Jerry (m), 27, a teacher.

  §  Synopsis “As a result of his prosecution of the killer of a prominent pro-choice advocate, a young lawyer is imprisoned. When a young teacher springs to his defense, they both understand  that they are living in a totalitarian regime and plan their escape.

  §  Comment “Minimal production requirements. The  play is a shortened version of Gordon Osmond’s ‘What’s It All About, Albee?’ which was well received by audiences and critics in a San Luis Obispo, California, U.S.A., production.  The play is a tribute to the philosophy of Ayn Rand.”

  §  Themes education, escape, futuristic, law, murder, pro-choice advocacy, prison, prosecution, teaching, totalitarianism.
