Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if Cuban Rebel questions his loyalty to the cause when his prisoners are his own siblings. Fiery drama about human rights abuse and redemption

Don't see it if you are sensitive to this topic.

Absorbing, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you're looking for an intense, family drama taking place during a historical event.

Don't see it if you are looking for something light-hearted, dislike family drama, or stories set in the past.

"The performances in this ninety minute show are haunting, tapping into the dark side of human nature, conveying our fear of violence as well as our hunger for it. If only Ramos’s drama possessed the same sense of complexity. The problem with the script is that it mounts the soapbox and never gets off. Plays should have a point of view, but not to the point that it gets in the way of the richness of the characterizations."
