An interesting play because the army top brass tried to get it banned.

It was disturbing; Jimmy McGoverns plays
often are.

Six plays called ACCUSED. The ones I have seen suggest that the whole story is never told in trials. (That will be true)

The last time I heard of army bullying it was called "BEASTING" I believe a soldier died after an unofficial punishment session.

I suppose war is never going to be a pretty story. ( I had never heard the word
"BITCH" used in an army context before)

Flutey...Its actually a writers/jokers board You cannot do either in one sentence.

Accept if a priest has spoken over you

I did some time in the army...it is a different world. But we had plenty of laughs;
and there was a good CLASS mix unlike civilian life

The ACCUSE play is a big subject in some papers. I thought it would run big on Mumsnet

It was heavy going. Chill the blood.

i think you need to learn how to spell my name if you are intent on insulting me directly.

I didn't insult you. i stated a fact. you are, indeed, wired to the moon.

That said, I suppose most of us are fussy about our names; but here it not proper names.
