The Fullerton Junior College Theater Arts Department will present its final fall production, "The Physicists," at 8 p.m., on Dec. 7, 8, 9, and 10. It will be presented in the Studio Theater.
This play will have a great appeal to both the faculty and students because of its subject matter-the immensity of the threat posed by the invention of the atom bomb.
"THE PHYSICISTS" In the plot of "The Physicists," there are three in an insane asylum. The asylum to which their paths have led them seems much saner than the mad, mad world they've left behind,
Brooding over all is the head of the sanitarium, a woman psychiatrist, who has to enact the most frightening scene at the close of the play. We learn that each of the scientists has been led down a path of moral destruction, past signposts of truth, the purity of science and personal responsibility
