The Smoke of Home

Author(s): &

The play is a historical allegory, set in the Thirty Years War (1618–48), which enabled the co-authors to draw parallels with their own wartime situation. Four imprisoned soldiers spend most of the play fervidly anticipating their release and homecoming until Casselius’s devastating monologue reveals to them that there will be no return to the life they remember.
