Streamers Read ↠ 0 With his earlier plays The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel Sticks and Bones and In the Boom Boom Room David Rabe established himself as one of America's leading young playwrights Streamers is his most powerful and successful playSet in an army barracks in the early days of the Vietnam War Streamers has electrified audiences. This one snuck up on me I borrowed it on a whim only really looking for something to fill the empty time on a bus ride It was engrossing I started reading it just because it was the first selection in the anthology of plays and I d never heard of it before It caught some momentum pretty much right at the start and really kept my attention throughout It s not really a war play it s about the studying of several individuals from different backgrounds under pressure challenging and reaching out and provoking each other under claustraphobic and possibly deranged circumstances I usually pick up on the allegorical ualities of plays like this this guy with the glasses and the big vocabulary represents the intellect and so on but Rabe really does an excellent job of making the characters believeably human complex and interesting Characters react in unexpected ways to unforseen situations and the climax comes out of nowhere but seems fitting in that strange way in which situations have a momentum of their own

Streamers Read ↠ 0 Stance of their livesand Sergeants Cokes and Rooney two aging dipsomaniacal soldiers whose grimly humorous song about parachutes that fail to open gives the play both its title and its fundamentally compassionate toneBeautiful streamerOpen for meThe sky is above meBut no canopy Streamers is a classic of the American theater. One of the 10 best American plays of all time though it doesn t read as well on paper as it plays on stage Rabe has used subtlety and nuance throughout and created one of theatre s cruelest characters in Carlyle I had the privilege of seeing the original production I walked away badly shaken Then I bought the script read it and was shaken all over againOne caveat Avoid the movie Everything about it is a mistake No one does the play any which is a shame but it remains well worth reading aloud with a group if you can
