Tensions arise when a young officer is billeted with them, and a bitter, savage war of words, only just disguised as humour, is waged against him. After an hilarious birthday party, into which several cans of beer have been smuggled, the six find themselves facing charges of misconduct - and then the fighting really starts. Fired by the authors anger at the Armys neglect of its wounded heroes, the play is a perceptive and surprisingly tender work.
