the play evokes both a sense of the horror and futility of war itself, and a renewed awareness of the misguided, if well-meant, policies which allowed a "police action" to escalate into a trauma which divided the nation. "This is an evening in the theater you should not miss-both as a theatregoer and as a person." -NY Post. ". . .a jivey, at times funny, language that combines timeless military lingo with rock 'n' rock cadences, drug jargon, pidgin Vietnamese and english, and an almost surreal litany of profanity." -NY Times. "a land mine of a play that blows complacency to shreds." -Newsweek Magazine. "eventually, every one of these soldiers, whether dead or merely dented, becomes one of our casualties, someone we sacrificed to this dreadful, unnecessary war." -NY Magazine.
