A wonderful stage adaptation of the sci-fi cult movie. History professor John Oldman unexpectedly resigns from the University where he has been lecturing for 10 years. But he won’t tell his friends why he is leaving or where he is going. He plans to leave all his friends and his girlfriend behind. As he is packing to leave his colleagues arrive for a surprise farewell party. They spend the night trying to unravel the mystery and then they hear something they never expected. But is it true?

Tempers rise and emotions flow as John's fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story, but it soon becomes clear that his tale is as impossible to disprove as it is to verify. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax. Acclaimed science fiction writer Jerome Bixby, writer of the original Star Trek and The Twilight Zone, first conceived this story back in the early 1960's. It would come to be his last great work.
