The Code Breaker
The Code Breaker
This gripping, futuristic adventure play presents four teenagers faced with important choices at a time when new responsibilities challenge old standards. ". . . the stuff of which classics are made." —Review
Drama. By Pauline C. Conley.

Cast: 2m., 3w. This award-winning original play tells a timeless story of the difficult process of growing up, even in a society where technology has vastly simplified the externals of life. When Bernice's friend Pete breaks the entry code to the master computer's top secret file and uncovers a long-forgotten world beyond their enclosed Orb, they set out to prove this world's existence. They are introduced to unique and wonderful objects (apples and a rabbit) but suffer reprisals from the master computer who is afraid that their knowledge will destroy the Orb's fragile civilization. Forced to take ever-greater risks, they watch in dismay as the standards by which they have lived become meaningless, with loyalty turning to betrayal, friendship giving way to self-preservation, and duty replacing truth. But even as their world begins to crumble around them, they discover that it is they themselves who have the power to forge a new world in its place. One set, simple or elaborate. Futuristic costumes. Approximate running time: 70 minutes.
