Show Synopsis

This is a wild, free-flowing comedy that’s easy to stage. M*A*S*H stands for Mobile
Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and
Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the
best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young
Korean to the United States and entered in a good school. The thread of this effort
helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before the eyes
of your astonished and hysterical audience! Hawkeye has a scene with a woman
psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy!
There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing
act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the
Bay of Phum. Radar O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before
they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the
recreation of an old monster movie and a monster! It’s all here, including a little romance
mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes the Korean boy
does get his education in the United States!
