Dealing with three Vietnam veterans recuperating in an Army hospital, this play is both compassionate and funny whilst remaining uncompromisingly honest. The three GIs while away their time on the terrace of the hospital. Gately, a hillbilly, fiddles compulsively with a disembowelled radio: Silvio, a street-wise big city type, is addicted to flashing (even though his sex organs have suffered irremediable battle damage): while Natwick, a prissy rich kid from Long Island, writes letters to his mother telling her how much he wants to become a close friend of Gately while failing to mention how actively Silvio dislikes him. Comprised of a series of brief scenes, the play creates a meaningful mosaic as the three men tease, torment, entertain, exasperate and, on occasion, console each other.
