Reseña del editor
Richard Schenkman / 6m, 3f / Drama / Unit Set After history professor John Oldman unexpectedly resigns from the University, his startled colleagues impulsively invite themselves to his home, pressing him for an explanation. But they’re shocked to hear his reason for premature retirement: John claims he must move on because he is immortal, and cannot stay in one place for more than ten years without his secret being discovered. 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’, originally conceived this story back in the early 1960’s. It would come to be his last great work.

If you plan on producing this play, this is essential. However, if you want a bit more insight into the movie, this may be for you. I say "may be" because I found it a bit wanting, although to be fair I was expecting the "novel the movie was based on" ...obviously, I didn't read the description very well (the front cover of the book tells it all).
This book (screenplay) was produced after the movie was made, and it runs word for word from the movie. If you've seen the movie, you know this is a fairly simple drama in terms of setting. All the action is in the dialogue and as a screenplay this does exactly what a screenplay should do: set the scene and give the characters their lines (I'm greatly simplifying, of course).
This was a good read and a short one. The stage direction gives most of the insight and if you liked the movie, you'll like this.
