Hailed as a female Journey's End, this is the story of nurses on Bataan. In a sort of dugout subjected to gunfire the individual characters emerge to offer a collective reaction to war. These include the strong minded doctor, her restrained and poised assistant and the volunteer nurses: a vacuous Southern girl, a swaggering bully, a couple of timid aesthetes, an ex burlesque girl and the inevitable spy. They get on each other's nerves, arrest the wrong person for spying and confront the real traitor. They are rescued from their buried dugout only to face the firing squad. This is a compelling, caustic revelation of human beings under fire.
CRY HAVOC was first presented at the Morosco Theatre in New York City. It was directed by Allan R. Kenward.

All Female

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

DOC MARSH - an elderly woman of great activity
SMITTY - a handsome girl in her early thirties. Lean, competent, thorough and cool.
FLO HARRIS - a big girl - the kind we see grining at us from news-reels as the winner of a corn-husking contest. Slow of speech and action, she is a bit of a philosophyer in her own way.
PAT CONLIN - a fiery little pug-nosed girl with a good consignment of freckles, who has a bit of a swagger about everything she does.
GRACE LAMBERT - a well-formed and attractive girl of medium height.
HELEN DOMERET - a lovely statuesque blonde, who carries herself like a model and whose thoughts continually run to men.
NYDIA JOYCE - a cute little literal-minded Southerner.
SUSAN and ANDRA WEST - auburn-haired English girls. Susan, the elder, is the leader, continually protecting and looking out for the more fragile Andra.
CONSTANCE MARKS - a Dresden-doll of a girl, beautifully turned out, delicate and, one might think, too fragile for the work ahead.
STEPHANY FOLDEN (STEVE) - a large, raw-boned, muscular gal who carries herself like a man.
SADIE - a substantial middle-aged woman.
