The setting, scrupulously evoked by Edward E. Haynes Jr.'s handsome set and Elizabeth Harper's mellow lighting, is an elite black men's club in Birmingham, the gathering place for the city's African American elite. Sen. Charles Lincoln (Roger Robinson), a cocky, cynical political survivor, is running against his former aide, Paul Stanton (Rocky Carroll)

As the head of Pacific Telesis Group, Philip J. Quigley was a vigorous supporter of the new federal telecommunications law that allowed telephone companies like his to compete more freely in an era of emerging technologies and eager new rivals.

"The 24th Day," which had its world premiere Saturday night at the Coronet Theatre, offers two heartthrob-actors who aren't doctors but who play them on TV.

In his first full-length play, Anthony Piccirillo invents a situation to keep these two men closeted together in a small New York apartment for 48 hours.
