As the priest arrives to say prayers for the dead, a groan is heard from the newly dug graves. Slowly the dead soldiers rise up, pleading not to be buried and asking to rejoin the living. Word of their insurrection spreads quickly to the living soldiers and the military brass, who use a variety of techniques to convince the dead soldiers to get back into their graves. Both bold and wickedly funny, “Bury the Dead” is a thought-provoking work that is as relevant today as when it was written.
