Book DescriptionGraham, a conscript just back from the Vietnam War, is awaiting a reunion with his wife Keren when her lover Neville appears instead. Their confrontation is interrupted by the arrival of Neville's pregnant wife Elizabeth and then by Keren herself. The domestic comedy is dramatically overlaid by Graham's reverberating question: 'What have you done to stop the war?', but the ethics of protest are further complicated by the arrival of Dennis, Graham's army mate, who having discovered his own wife with another man, kidnapped their child and robbed a service station (2 acts, 5 men, 2 women).
