There have been few plays in which comedy and pathos have been so poignantly blended as in The Hasty Heart, which is set in the convalescent hut of an Army hospital on the Assam-Burma front in World War II. The inmates of the hut are a cross-section of the nationalities that fought in the South-East Asia campaign, and they have names that identify their origins-Tommy, Digger, Kiwi, and Yank, though the last-named, an American from the southern States, accepts his inevitable nickname with some reluctance. There is also a Basuto tribesman whom the others have jocularly named 'Blossom'. On the whole, and in the circumstances, they are a remarkably cheerful group and have, indeed, so high a reputation for congeniality that their hut is allocated a rather special patient.
The newcomer, Sergeant Lachlen McLachlen, is perhaps the dourest representative of a notoriously dour nation it would be possible to discover. A taciturn cynic, and as touchy as a hedgehog, he bristles with open suspicion at the simplest gesture of friendliness or generosity. However, as Dr. Johnson once remarked, 'much may be made of a Scotsman if he be caught young', and his companions, on their Colonel's instructions, set to work to break down this forbidding facade. They know, as Lachie does not, that he has only six weeks to live. K. A. H.
