Pvt. Wars by James McLure

1. Comedy.

2. Vietnam vets in a VA hospital trying to rediscover their place in the world.

You wouldn't think the two go especially well together, would you? Guess again. McLure has done something quite remarkable here - created characters whose depth, pain and struggle are all too real and all too sadly forgotten once again a generation later, and still made a funny play out of it.

Characters: 3 men, middling
Scenes/Monologues: Both
