Synopsis

“The Desk Set” tells the story of a woman named Bunny who, with an encyclopedic knowledge of facts and figures, works in a television network reference department. Electronic brains are installed to do the work of people, soon replacing whole departments, but Emmaracs can not best Bunny in a game of wits, which causes them to blow fuses. Here is a telling comedy, rich in hilarity for anyone who has ever worked in an office.

Historian’s Corner

For the second show of the season “The Desk Set,” Dan Blake and Paul Dillow built a working replica of the 1950’s computer, EMERAC. New for this show and this season, The Posh Nosh, a downtown Bloomington deli, provided a variety of pastries for purchase during the intermissions on Fridays and Saturdays.
