DC Metro Theater Arts

for a previous production “Powerful and heartrending...By the end I was so emotionally devastated by what I had seen that I myself was unable to speak until a good several minutes later…The particular story ‘Occupied Territories’ tells is extraordinary...You may think you’ve seen plenty enough of the Vietnam War up close and personal...But when you experience how ‘Occupied Territories’ tells its moving, memorable, and mythic story, you’ll have to think again.” Full Review

DC Theatre Scene

for a previous production “A visceral and stunning new work…A swift-moving, highly emotive piece of theater that captures the ways memory shapes us, haunts us, sustains us…The scenes in the jungle are so immediate and dangerous you can practically smell the napalm…Yet, there is nothing unsurprising about these flashbacks, which explode with movement, terror and tension, ambushing your emotions…‘Occupied Territories’ sears the heart in its exploration of the cost of war.” Full Review
