September 12th, 2016

"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."
