The Orphan By David W. Rabe


The Vietnam War has just ended and society is living with those psychological consequences. With the backdrop of American fixation with blood shed, political and military treatment in Vietnam and the breaking a part of the family structure, Rabe's play is a contemporary inspiration of the Greek masterwork Oresteia by Aeschylus and uncovers a world of violence, heartbreak and the destruction of American Dream.
