Published by Dramatists Play Service
3 Male 3 Female
Subtitled A Play for Trees and People, this haunting and imaginative short play was first presented on New York's Channel 13 (Educational Television) as part of a program on pollution and conservation entitled Foul!
Leader ~ Successfully produced Off-Broadway, this biting and satirical study of the paradox of "leadership" is offered here in a shortened version prepared specifically by the author for non-professional production
Moving swiftly to its shattering climax, the play exposes the destructive fears which preoccupy a group of anxious and concerned followers - fears to which their Leader can only reply "It's not important" - until Leader is revealed as a robot, and the others lapse into helpless, babbling lunacy
