An Irish football hero embarks for the battlefields of France in The Silver Tassie, an expressionistic World War I drama by City Theatre at Sacramento City College. Across four loosely connected acts, this antiwar classic by the great Dublin playwright Sean O'Casey travels from the battlefield to a veterans' hospital, and finally to a sporting club where former athletic legend Harry Heegan finds himself treated as a pitiable victim, betrayed by those who once loved him. What emerges is a powerful examination of the brutalizing impact of war, mixing naturalism, black humor and searing pain at Art Court Theatre.
