An early masterwork by one of the world's leading playwrights.

"Even more than an immediately impressive exercise in historical drama, the play deals in the rawness of life during the Civil War and the crazy mixture of ideals and half truths which led a group of free-loving pantheistic communists to set their standard against the standard of false revolution of Cromwell's parliamentarians." -Steve Grant

"The play has an austere eloquence that precisely matches its subject." -The Guardian

"A play that commands one's attention and that can lead to enlightenment." -Mel Gussow, New York Times
