A Letter From The General
Set in the common room of a mission station in a Far Eastern Country in the year 1950. Revolution has swept over this country and is now lapping around the walls of a mission station which specialises in caring for orphaned children. The children have been taken away on the orders of the General, that they may not be contaminated by a capitalist religion; only the Sisters are left and one peasant family who live in a hut at the Mission gates.
Any day the revolution may swamp the nuns and they may be escorted from the country; but it is more likely that the General will order them to be liquidated. Matters are complicated by the arrival of Father Schiller, who has been wrecked by torture and Reverend Mother agrees to hide him. Internal tensions add to the complexities of the situation and lead to its dramatic resolution.
