Brewsie And Willie

Brewsie And Willie

Lisabeth Blake
touching and disturbing play about the men who fought World War II, and their loneliness and confusion after it was over. The war has just ended and Brewsie and Willie, along with other "walking wounded" G.I.s, sit in a small Paris cafe, waiting for news as to when they will be shipped home. Brewsie, always thinking out loud to anyone who will listen, mulls over the "why" of the whole thing, trying to find some sort of answer. Willie declines to become involved in the discussions, insisting that there is no answer. Yet, he is the only one who really listens to Brewsie. The others are too filled with the anticipation of home.

written by Ellen Violett And Lisabeth Blake. Adapted from the book by Gertrude Stein
