Rattlestick Theatre presents a play about two soldiers who wait for battle, but there are no enemies left to fight and no one, especially those in charge, seems to know who has won. More…
American soldiers Smith and Leadem kill time at a worn out desert outpost swallowed by sand on the other side of the world. Dutifully fulfilling their mission, they wait for a sign from the enemy, for further orders, for anything. As their rations shrink and the desert, sky, and sand seem to grow and expand around them, they fight for clarity and sanity, to stay on task, and to serve as they’ve sworn to do. As the days fall away it becomes less and less possible to know what is future, past, living, dead, or dream.
