Requiem

Synopsis:
The brief moments between the wars begin Requiem but then the draft notices are posted again and the tragic cycle recommences. But a Mother has had enough of the death of her children. She refuses to surrender her son and daughter. "The war machine cranks up and they want my oil again," she soliloquizes. Her battle with the Sergeant and her ultimate sacrifice are the soul of the play.
