BWW Reviews: NYMF's BAYONETS OF ANGST is Raucous Revelry
by David Clarke - Jul 17, 2014

Set in the present day on the porch of a swamp house in Mississippi, BAYONETS OF ANGST introduces audiences to a handful of old codgers who are partaking in their annual reunion. In fact, this is their 149th gathering, and each year the shrinking group gets together to relive their experiences during the American Civil War.
