About this show

Savages, by Anne Nelson, is a play about war and its consequences, for both victors and victims -- exploring the narrow distance between the two. It is set in the midst of the Philippine-American Conflict in 1902, a war that was a defining moment for the Philippines but has been almost forgotten in the United States. The play explores the situation through the eyes of four characters: the general currying favor with Washington; the Marine major on trial for war crimes; the green young recruit; and the Filipina who is their most human contact to an alien environment.
