        Fifth Column

Fifth Column

Fifth Column is the Dramatic, sexy, and surprisingly funny story of the private and political passions of Philip Rawlings, a counter-espionage agent working for the Republic during the Spanish Civil War. at the heart of the play is a romance between Rawlings and Dorothy Bridges, a journalist in over her head professionally and head-over-her-heels personally. against a backdrop of treachery and danger, Dorothy and Philip take solace in each other's arms and dream of peace-a dream that threatens Rawlings's commitment to the cause. Hemingway wrote the Fifth Column in 1937 while in Spain as a correspondent for the North American Newspaper alliance. Franco's army had four columns advancing on Madrid and a 'Fifth Column' of hidden fascist sympathizers within the city using terrorist tactics to bring down the government
