To Carrie Morgan, the Morgan Yard is a burying ground where all Morgans have rested since 1789. To the Defense Department, it is land owned by them since the little known Redefinition of Public Lands was enacted in 1934. When the department tries to incorporate the yard into its Indian Landing Depot, the town, the Army and Carrie find themselves on a collision course and the yard becomes a place of mortal struggle.

"Like an American Mother Courage. . . . Carrie behaved like Brecht's heroine, right down to the shattering last scene when the bodies of her son and grandson are ready to be mourned. It is a play that grows on one." - Evening Herald, Dublin
