About the show?.
It's 1968 and the TET Offensive in Vietnam is on the local bar's TV. James is staring military service in the face, so he and Molly decide to join the Peace Corps. In Ecuador, they are young, idealistic, and ineffective. Then Molly's Uncle steps out of the shadows and offers James a better way to help the third world. In Java and then Iran, James is doing good until he meets an old friend in the desert. Ecuador, Indonesia, Iran..........oil, coup d'etats, dams and roads................do you see a thread? From the TET Offensive to the fall of the Shah, the Mime Troupe traces history and asks, what price do we pay for affluence?
