Show Info


Soldier's Wife is a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of World War II. Wounded in the South Pacific, John Rogers is the soldier; returning home to be greeted by a baby boy who he is meeting for the first time and Kate, his wife who has learned self-sufficiency in his absence. Adjusting to the challenges of a new domestic equation is further complicated by the sudden and unexpected fame that is thrust upon Kate when letters she has written to John are published to great acclaim in a book entitled: Soldier's Wife. In 1944 the New York Journal American described the play as both "a timely, provocative play" and "a bright, sophisticated, intelligent comedy. In a sense, Soldier's Wife is a poignant love story - the struggle of a confused couple to recapture romance. And this is done not with mirrors, but with merriment. The dialogue is suave and sparkling.
