Written by Neil Simon, it’s the second play in the trilogy following “Brighton Beach Memoirs.” “Biloxi Blues” follows Eugene Morris Jerome as he gets sent to the Army training camp in Biloxi, Miss., in 1943. There, the naive New Yorker who has never before left home is forced to confront difficult issues and his own reactions to them. The play is as funny as it is poignant.
