About This Show

Bury the Dead, an anti-war play by Irwin Shaw, opens at a military burial. As the priest and the rabbi arrive to say prayers for the dead, a groan is heard from the newly dug graves. Slowly the newly deceased soldiers rise up, pleading not to be buried and asking to rejoin the living. Word of their insurrection spreads quickly to the living soldiers and the military brass, who use a variety of techniques to convince the dead soldiers to get back to their graves.
