The Ghosts of Tonkin

History Repeats Itself, First as Tragedy, then as Farce ( Karl Marx)

The Bellingham TheatreWorks’ production The Ghosts of Tonkin by Steve Lyons, opened at ACTLab, (formerly ACT’s Central Heating Lab). It concerns the famous Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which severely escalated what is commonly called “The Viet-Nam War” although Congress never declared war on North Viet-Nam, which would have been constitutionally necessary in order to officially call it a war.
