Veteran husband-and-wife acting couple, Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson, long associated with comic playwright Murray Schisgal, reprise the roles they created in the original 1963 hit off-Broadway play in this 1971 production. Consigned to spend the rest of their lives in a duplicating shop copying names out of a telephone directory, Wallach plays a married man, a typist new to the office, and Jackson is the spinster supervisor who breaks him in. Through their random conversations, the two strangers learn a lot about each other... and a lot more about themselves.
