Yesterday I saw a David Fennario Play called Bosheviki. David Fennario is about as left wing as you can get. He is an avowed marxist. He is a pretty good playwright.
This play was about the futility of war. I don't think it was particularly disrespectful to our soldiers and veterans, but it did make me gnash my teeth. It is the story of Rosie, a WW1 veteran who comes back from the war a bolsheviki. It did engender some discussion with the friend I went with, so I suppose it served some purpose. The audience gave it and David fennario, a standing ovation. I did not.
This is Fennnario on the subject. A lot of this dialogue is in the play.
