Dealing with the many-sided moral questions concerning megapower involvement in other countries' internal affairs, this is the story of the last day in the life of a famous spy, George C. O'Connor, and his madness and death in Central America

"That this House congratulates the Shaw Theatre, its Director and staff on the excellent production of Donald Freed's play, The Quartered Man; expresses its particular admiration for Barry Foster's tour de force in his role as the United States Embassy official caught up in the evil campaign being waged by the present United States of America Administration against Nicaragua; and looks forward to the day when President Reagan's state-sponsored terrorism is replaced by United States of America policy towards Central America more in sympathy with United States public opinion and the needs and wishes of Central American people" ~ Notices of Motions, House of Commons, London, 17th February, 1988

"[The Quartered Man] is a passionate and legitimate attack on the supra-national arrogance of the CIA and on the de-stabilising tactics it is adopting in Central America" ~ Michael Billington, The Guardian

"Freed makes the interesting point that there is now a new breed of American 'Neanderthal war-whore' who mutated from the rubble of Vietnam..." ~ Victoria Radin, New Statesman
