The Prisoners of Quai Dong is a play that tells the story of an American prisoner of war in a stockade for military prisoners in Viet Nam who is ordered to participate in the interrogation and torture of a Vietnamese boy. The soldier is conflicted but is caught up in the coils of the war machinery and no matter how much he twists and turns is trapped by the army bureaucracy and cannot avoid being promoted.  This play dramatically portrays how witnessing the destruction of  another human being destroys the humanity of us all. Originally produced in 1979 in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, this brilliant work was lost because audiences were anxious to put the war behind them. Nearly 40 years have passed. During the past two years PSC nurtured the play with two staged readings. We are committed to putting our full resources behind realizing this play as our first full production.
