April Fools’ Day, 1919: A young, ambitious publisher (Robert Sean Leonard) receives a mysterious machine that begins to pump out piles of manuscripts – from the future!

But the play’s reams of content fail to coalesce, despite terrific performances from Leonard, an attractive Scott Foley, and a hilarious Mario Cantone.
