This is the second play in the Eugene trilogy series. It is 1943, and Eugene Jerome is going to boot camp in Biloxi, Mississippi before being shipped over to Europe. The raw recruits have a insane sergeant who wants to instill discipline in his men. One of the recruits is not interested in the military or its rules. He fights the sergeant every step of the way until finally one of them folds under the pressure. This conflict was the only thing in the play that was interesting. There was lots of crude language, which I guess writers feel is necessary to be realistic. Eugene's first experience with a prostitute was excruciating to read about and his first love was boring. I find it amazing that people would go to see this play.
