Per Dramatists Play Service: This turbulent and gutsy play tells the story of a group of American prisoners who embarrass and irritate their captors as they try to escape from a German prison camp. The plot revolves around the escape of an American who will face serious punishment for sabotaging a train as will his fellow prisoners who hide him. The prisoners at last learn which of them has been all the while a stooge for the Germans, for which he pays the ultimate price. The dominant tone of the play is lusty comedy, but it is ingeniously combined at all times with excitement and tension of the most holding sort of suspense.full details
