Antelope Valley Thespians presents:THE AMERICAN CENTURY
By Murphy Guyer
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, New York.
World War II has ended and Tom, just discharged from the Army, returns to his young wife, Margaret, full of hope, enthusiasm, and dreams of a bounteous future. But suddenly they are joined by a brash young stranger who, to their amazement, proceeds to make himself very much at home. He is, he explains, from the future, having arrived via the latest drugs in special psychotherapy session. The stranger fills the young couple in so completely about their past and present lives—and the future which awaits them—that Tom and Margaret soon find themselves moving from incredulity to panic. In the most casual, blithely humorous manner, the stranger tells of a world gone mad in this hilarious and intelligent satire of our modern American lives.
