Post-war guilt

In an Arizonian drying-out clinic, a guilt-ridden US army veteran receives some visitors from his past. If you like clear-cut narratives, you’ll be severely disappointed. Asking big questions, like how far someone would go to preserve the image of a perfect America and fuel hate for those who threaten it, while highlighting the mental effects of war and the need for belief in a higher entity, this piece is big on ideas and doesn’t suffer from its lack of resolution.

A guilt-ridden US Army veteran receives visitors from his past in an Arizonian drying-out clinic. Big on ideas and nicely executed. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
