Letters from five continents intersect in this powerful story that explores the deeper meanings of patriotism, heroism, love of liberty and courage under fire

It's the 1940s and four women are changed and marked by a world at war

A young army nurse under bombardment on the Philippine Island of Corregidor during World War II corresponds with her mother, her teacher, and her best friend

Because of the war, friendships change, courtships go amiss and family bonds stress or strengthen

A spiritually uplifting, emotionally touching war story, all the more intense because it is told by women

"Waiting for MacArthur is funny, moving, and at times, poetic. This play will knock you for a loop with its humor and grace

It will make you shiver at its penetrating insights about courage under fire and the hellish banality of war

And it will leave you thinking long after about the amazing capacity for hope and love among the women and men who served and those who stayed behind" ~ The Daily Record, Morris County, N.J

"... a poignant look at love and war" ~ Independent Press

"This show is an example of theater at its best" ~ The Daily Record, Morris County, New Jersey

"Waiting for MacArthur tells a gripping World War II story which hasn't been heard, about the courage and valor of the women who served in the Army nursing corps" ~ San Antonio Express-News
