Summary William Styron's riveting and humorous play about a group of Marines who stand up to the military machine In the summer of 1943, a young Marine named Wally Magruder arrives at a Navy hospital in the American South, stricken with what doctors diagnose as a severe case of syphilis. Trapped in the stifling confines of the urology ward, Magruder and his fellow patients rebel against the authoritarian Dr. Glanz, a physician who delights in the power that sickness gives him. But as they seek to reclaim their identities against dehumanization, the ward becomes a hell more real than any of them could have imagined. Inspired by Styron's own experience in a military hospital, In the Clap Shack is a searing indictment of military brutalization and a brilliant defense of individualism and personal freedom. This ebook features new manuscripts, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the William Styron archives at Duke University.
