After Major Eatherly took part in the bombing of Hiroshima, he refused to march in the hero’s parade, or accept a hero’s pension. Desperate to prove he was not a hero, he started holding up banks and forging checks in an effort to send money to the children of Hiroshima. His exploits made him world-famous, and he stirred up every shade of opinion, from Colonel Tibbets who called him a traitor, to Gunther Anders who thought madness was the only sane reaction.

This play follows Eatherly’s wild ride from ace World War 2 pilot to inmate of a maximum-security mental hospital and witness of present-day U.S. defense policy. It is both urgent and relevant, as the world hovers dangerously once more on the brink of nuclear war…
