"It is probably the wittiest play he ever wrote, the most flawless technically, and in spite of being a very light comedy, the most telling.”

 

CHARACTERS:  4 Men and 3 Women. 

Captain Bluntschli A professional soldier from Switzerland who is serving in the Serbian army. He is thirty-four years old, and he is totally realistic about the stupidity of war.

Raina Petkoff The romantic idealist of twenty-three who views war in terms of noble and heroic deeds. Noted for her beauty has a depth of character she tries hard to ignore.

Sergius Saranoff The extremely handsome young Bulgarian officer who leads an attack against the Serbs which was an overwhelming success. In love with love rather than Raina, in fact better suited to Louka.

Major Petkoff The inept, fifty-year-old father of Raina; he is wealthy by Bulgarian standards, but he is also unread and incompetent.

Catherine Petkoff Raina's mother; she wears fashionable dressing gowns and tea gowns all the time in an effort to appear to be a Viennese lady.

Louka The Petkoffs' female servant; she is young and physically attractive, and she uses her appearance for ambitious preferment.

Nicola A realistic, middle-aged manservant who is very practical.
