It’s springtime in America. The war is finally over. Grotilde has completed her life’s work of losing the last 10 pounds, General Michail has proposed, and the President is up to his new tricks. So what if the weather is a little strange and the last soldier won’t come home?
See it if You're ready for a unique take on war exhaustion, you don't mind surprises, you enjoy rapid wordplay, you like to see great downtown artists

See it if you'd like to see what a contemporaty version of Jarry or Ionesco may look like, if done terribly.
Don't see it if you are looking for anything subtle, well written or well directed.
See it if You find sight gags and random verbal whimsey worthy if your time.
Don't see it if You are expecting satire, or any serious comment on society and war. I heard lots of laughter from the audience but this was without merit.
