Hair tells the story of Vietnam-era youths awkwardly but exuberantly creating their own rite of passage through the confusion around them. Among them are Claude and Berger; a pair of friends battling against Claude’s draft notice, and Sheila, who is in love with both of them, but her politically-active lifestyle leaves her little time to act on her feelings. Ultimately, Claude decides to go to Vietnam. With themes of alienation and civil disobedience Hair illustrates the ’60s generation’s search for meaning through various “be-ins,” “love-ins” and protests.
