Sylvia Gellburg (JoBeth Williams) has stopped walking, and her husband, Philip (Lawrence Pressman), is determined to find out why. His only clue is her growing obsession with stories coming out of Germany about Nazi violence toward Jews. Setting his drama in Brooklyn, 1938, Miller uses the Nazi atrocities overseas as a mirror for the Gellburgs' troubled marriage and Philip's own inadequacies. He creates an intensely personal play, but one that lends itself to the kind of intimacy that audio theater excels in. As Dr. Harry Hyman (David Dukes) probes Sylvia and Philip's secrets, he probes ours as well. Like ripples in pond water, what happens in Germany happens to the Gellburgs and the audience as well, in the hands of these fine artists.
