SYNOPSIS: The greatest mind of science has discovered something world changing, but unfortunately he's a narcoleptic who can't stay awake long enough to tell anyone about it. His sultry secretary, who just happens to have a crush on her boss, is left to defend his discovery from a zany cast of characters including bumbling secret agents, a nagging wife, two of the world's creepiest girls scouts and everyone else who thinks that they have a reason to control this important new, yet undefined, discovery. This play is a subtly political and always hilarious commentary on how the different parts of society attempt to alternately exploit, suppress, hype and redefine scientific discoveries.
