An uproarious, brilliantly provocative farce that brings the gifts of the quintessentially American playwright to bear on the current American political situation. Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin farm. They are visited by Frank’s old friend Haynes, who is on the run from a secret government project involving plutonium, and they agree to shelter him for a short while. Soon they’re visited by Welsh, an unctuous government bureaucrat from hell. His agressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously low half-life.
