The Desk Set

Written in 1955 at the dawn of the electronic age, The Desk Set amiably mixes the retro with the topical as it delves into anxiety about technology and job security. Part of a broadcasting network’s reference department, Bunny Watson and her team act as walking encyclopedias, immediately answering phoned-in queries from all corners of the company and letting employees sit on their lap to look taller. When an efficiency expert arrives with plans to install Emma, a supercomputer, the department must fight back to preserve their jobs against the machine’s fact-storing facility. What they devise is a battle of wits that just might prove human minds are superior after all.<p>

Way Off Broadway Community Players

The Way Off Broadway Community Players are dedicated to the magic of live performance. Over their 17 seasons, they’ve lost a theatre to a fire and hunkered down in a former grocery store, but never gave up their dream of finding a permanent home. Now firmly ensconced in longterm digs, the company delights audiences with seasons of ribald farces, hilarious comedies, and dramas designed to warm any heart not safely packed in ice.
