Joseph Heller uses the catchet arising from Catch-22 to assemble a play about a fictional war crime which leads to a serious condemnation of the vietnam era's military bureaucratic processes...well intentioned, but not good theatre. ( )
  DinadansFriend | May 20, 2019 |
The author of Catch-22 takes on war once again in this unhinged comedy of war time. From bombing Constantinople (while recognizing it no longer exists) to wiping out Minnesota, the characters learn the downsides of war (death) while playing basketball and ribbing each other about who is the better actor. In a style Brecht would appreciate, the characters never let you forget you are watching a play by frequently stepping out of character and complaining about their lines, quoting Henry V, and just in general rebelling against not only the war but the play itself. A worthwhile read, but probably much more fun to watch. ( )
