In this hilarious and heart warming, Tony Award winning semi-autobiographical Neil Simon play, young Eugene Morris Jerome enlists in the U.S. Army at the end of World War II. He is shipped from his Brooklyn home to basic training in Biloxi, Mississippi. At boot camp, Eugene is antagonized by the manic drill instructor, is introduced to adulthood, love and sex through his experiences with a diverse and rowdy group of young recruits, his first girlfriend, and a local prostitute.
