Actress Mary Fickett, who appeared in the Broadway pro- duct]on of "Sunrise at Campo- belle." and actors Ed Bryce and Guy Arbury will star. "The Box" was inspired by artist Bruce Connor's winning entry in a San Francisco ex- hibit in which various artists tried to make concern for hu- man suffering both visible and understandable.
