Six aspiring authors meet on a winter's evening to discuss their work. Among them are writers of historical romances and children's literature who are finding it difficult to start writing and a crime writer who can't stop.

A creator of extremely complicated science fiction, a librettist without a musical partner and the Writer's Circle chairman, who produces instruction booklets, make up the rest of the team. The chairman, Arnold, attempts to get the rest of the group out of a rut by suggesting that they collaborate on a piece of writing, and idea that is received without enthusiasm.

However, as Arnold is clearing up after the meeting there is a clap of thunder, a black-out - and then... The story that would have resulted from the collaboration takes place before his very eyes.

A sharp comedy and affectionate satire characterize this ZANY, imaginative play.
