The Story

Three G.I.s recovering from Vietnam injuries while away their time on the terrace of an Army hospital. Gately, a hillbilly, fiddles compulsively with a disemboweled radio; Silvio, a streetwise, big-city type, while Natwick, a prissy "rich kid" from Long Island, writes letters to his mother telling her how much he wants to become a close friend of Gately. The play blends these into a meaningful mosaic as the three tease, torment, entertain, exasperate and, on occasion, solace each other—maintaining throughout a hilarity, which belies their deep concern about the uncertainties of the civilian world to that they will soon be returning.

Who's Who

ROLE Actor Character Description
Woodruff Gately Scott Schaeffer A young southerner. Childlike. Mentally slow, but not stupid. The kind of man who at age 30 might chase a fire engine to see where it was going.
Silvio Conor Fudge Italian American. Street wise. Tough but not cruel.
Natwick Lonnie Appleby A young man from Long Island. Intelligent. Spoiled. He should never have been in the armed forces.
Stage Manager Linda Dougan
Sound Amy McGhghy
Lights Mel Wilson
