Winner! 16th Annual American College Theatre Festival
The men are members of an infantry squad in the high country of Viet Nam in 1971. The women are girlfriends, wives or mothers back home who appear in the men's thoughts or fantasies. The female roles blend into, and comment on, the action. The play opens on the scene of a sandbag bunker at the moment that two members of an infantry squad are found dead. One was the victim of an enemy booby trap. The other was killed by a member of the squad. The presence of the women from home punctuates the intensity of the plot. The men try to unmask the killer before more deaths or mutilations occur.
