About the Book
November 2, 1965. Norman Morrison drives to the Pentagon with his infant daughter, a jug of kerosene and a box of matches. With Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara looking on, the young Quaker carries out a final act of witness against the horrors of the Vietnam War. Thirty-six years later, in the wake of 9/11, his daughter returns to confront the aging McNamara, the memory of her father, and the costly legacy of sacrifice.
“A compelling exploration of a small piece of American history, Devine proves himself a playwright to watch. Not since Frost/Nixon have I found American politics so interestingly portrayed onstage.” – Gay Vancouver
“As society struggles, Occupy Wall Street, to articulate coherent resistance to institutionalized power, Re:Union feels particularly relevant … Re:Union provides a thorough moral and intellectual workout.” – The Georgia Straight
