The War to End War

Mee, Charles L.

A triptych: Part I is the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. Part II is a Dadaist vaudeville, as the Dead Soldier rises from the grave as a minstrel comedian and Wittgenstein and Brockdorff-Rantzau become vaudevillians in a variety revue seemingly hosted by Kurt Schwitters, the German artist who created word poetry. Part III is a poker game at Los Alamos. [7 actors]
