Beyond the Unknown

From Fancyclopedia 3

A fannish play produced at Detention, the 1959 Worldcon in Detroit. Sam Moskowitz described it as “a heavy-handed spoof of several of the then-current magazine editors, most authentically John W. Campbell.... There are also jibes at The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and Galaxy, but they are much less insightful.”

The cast included SaM and Christine Moskowitz, Tom Scortia, Karen Anderson, Barbara Silverberg, Cele Goldsmith, Fritz Leiber, Randall Garrett, Djinn Faine, Joe Christoff, and Rosemary Becker.

The name of the playwright is beyond the unknown at this point, too, though it may have been one of the pros playing in it.
