This year, from all over the country, America's finest regional theater companies are coming to perform on a new and challenging stage. Your television set.

For a second season, Exxon brings you "Theater in America," a series of plays produced exclusively for television by WNET 13/New York, and hosted by Hal Holbrook.

"Theater in America" provides a unique showcase for some of America's finest companies and productions. This year, you'll see seventeen superb plays, including Chekhov's classic comedy-drama, The Seagull; Edmond Rostand's beloved classic Cyrano de Bergerac; Maxim Gorky's dramatic Enemies; and Forget Me Not Lane, an original work by Peter Nichols.

We at Exxon happily invite you to invite a great performance into your living room, starting now on your Public Broadcasting Service station.

Just dim the lights. Turn on your television set. And set the stage for "Theater in America."
