Abstract:

The play explores the way that Vietnam has affected three lives: a Marine veteran, his estranged wife, and his mistress. Seated at a table the three tell their various stories. The man confesses that he killed a Vietnamese family in cold blood and, carrying the seeds of violence with him, returned home to brutalize his pregnant wife. The wife, disillusioned and unhappy, wants to ignore the terrors that haunt her husband, believing that in time the awful memories will fade, while his mistress, an angry feminist, blames the man's destructiveness on the forces that conditioned him before he went to Vietnam.
