Entertainment in the enormous hospital camp for chronic cases at Nakhon Pathom got off to a slow start, but once an infusion of "light sick" talent arrived from other camps in late 1944, orchestral concerts, revues, and straight plays became available on a weekly basis and quickly changed the atmosphere in the camp from one of despair to one of hope.
