In the Clap Shack

A Book by

William Styron's play IN THE CLAP SHACK takes place on the Urological Ward of the United States Naval Hospital on a large Marine Corps base in the South. The time is the summer of 1943. The inmates represent the spectrum of imaginable unmentionable diseases-- especially in 1943. Into this den comes Wallace Magruder, an 18 year old diagnosed with a supposedly rampant case of syphilis. Magruder's fears prove worse than the reality. IN THE CLAP SHACK was first presented in December 1972 at the Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut. Adult themes and language.
