Benny Silverman, a celebrated comic, has revived his career via television after many years of forced inactivity following his having been named on the Hollywood blacklist of the Fifties.  Now his actress daughter, Norma, has been cast in a play to be directed by Leo Greshen, the man who had testified against Benny before the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities, and suddenly Benny must deal again with a moral crisis which he has tried to put behind him.  At his daughter’s urging he meets with Leo, a confrontation in which initial reserve gradually gives way to a provocative and increasingly passionate exchange of ideas and convictions until Benny, rising to the occasion with biting, devastating wit, lays to rest the sense of outrage and injustice which has preyed on his conscience for so many bitter years.
