A puppet play based on US General Douglas Macarthur's experiences in Australian during World War Two. While the author did a great deal of research into Macarthur's exploits in Australian, Japan and America, he admitted that he had "taken a few liberties with the facts, strictly in the interests of reality".
In 1982 this production toured to the ANU Arts Centre in Canberra (3-13 March) and the Sydney Opera House (11-22 May).
