From Clive Barnes NY Times Review on March 29, 1976
A man suffers a psychotic moment in battle—he breaks through a membrane of his existence, he is literally traumatized. He goes berserk. He does just the terrible things, those almost mythic feats of violence and killing, that society has trained him not to do. And society rewards him with a medal. His friends are dead, he is paralyzed with survivor guilt, and yet society still insists on giving him a medal. In the case of Dale Jackson it was the Medal of Honor.
Dale Jackson is the hero of Tom Cole’s new play.
New York premier production co-produced by Woodie King, Jr, Paul B. Borkowsky, and Lucille Lortel. The production received nominations fo both the Drama Desk and Obie Awards.
