FARCE/SATIRE. This wry, sardonic play offers a humorous and chilling look at war. A lonely, bored young soldier stands guard at a military hospital. There, he encounters wounded soldiers coming in from the “boom boom.” One shell-shocked soldier believes he is a dog named Fido, while another delirious soldier thinks the hospital is really a prison. Meanwhile, dimwitted kidnappers set out to free the Vice President’s brother, who is purportedly being held hostage at the hospital. The kidnappers manage to overtake the guard and enter the hospital, but the “hostage” refuses to be freed—he doesn’t want to leave his poker game.
