 The Prisoners of Quai Dong

BY HAROLD WILLIS

DIRECTED BY JANE SKAPEK

BASED ON A NOVEL BY VICTOR KOLPACOFF

The Prisoners of Quai Dong opened in New York in 1979 and was singled out as the best play written on the Vietnam War by Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Frances Fitzgerald. 

It 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.
