In 1947, in Tokyo, 500 women were dishonorably discharged from the US Army on the charge of homosexuality. "Murder in the WAC" is a one-woman show written and performed by Pat Bond, about how lesbians - herself among them - were recruited into the Women's Army Corps during WWII, and after the war expelled. There are a few mentions of the word sh-t that have had their vowels silenced for radio. Also a euphemistic reference to lesbian sex. This is comedy, but with a tragic ending.
Event produced and recorded by Katherine Davenport. Editing for radio and intro/outro by Frieda Werden.
