A play by Allan R. Kenward.
This American play has been hailed as a female Journeys End, and tells the story of some nurses on Bataan. The scene is exclusively in their living quarters, a dug-out, a converted gun emplacement early in 1942. The cast is composed entirely of women; we see them subjected to gunfire, and watch the individual characters emerge in a sort of collective reaction to war.
