ABOUT THE SHOW



The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel, the first in Rabe’s acclaimed Vietnam War trilogy, follows a naive and directionless young man drafted into the U.S. Army. Alienated from his fellow soldiers and searching for meaning and status, Hummel’s life and military experiences unfold backwards after a fateful encounter in a Saigon brothel.
