This is a powerful, true story of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country-western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play, by Shirley Lauro, portrays each young woman before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn jungle and ends as each leaves a personal token at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington. “There have been a number of plays dealing with Vietnam, but none with the direct, emotional impact of Ms. Lauro’s work.” –New York Times
