SUMMARY

THE STORY: As the play begins Franklin, a young draftee, and his new bride, Effie, are on their honeymoon, an idyll which ends when Franklin returns to his unit and then goes off to Korea, where he loses an arm. When he returns home things go steadily from bad to worse; he can't find a job; his wife is having an affair; and they are visited constantly by her best friend, Doina, a Rumanian émigré who mangles the English language and shares Effie's passion for movies. Eventually Franklin lands a job of sorts by virtually selling his soul to Tod, a rather sinister but successful manufacturer of artificial limbs whom Franklin had met in Korea, but his hope of pulling things together at last fails when Effie is killed by a collapsing movie palace balcony. The action then moves to Hell, where Effie and Doina are occupied making potholders and visiting supermarkets and where they are soon joined by Franklin, still the poor innocent searching for an America that promises a boundless, wonderful life-and surely doomed to failure by the oddities and evils of a world he never made.Keith Reddin is the author of 'Life and Limb.' with ISBN 9780822206583 and ISBN 0822206587.
