Intense, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Edgy, Disturbing

See it if Confronts issues of immigrants trying to assimilate. Where should loyalty and identity be sought? Powerful and well acted.

Don't see it if Torture scenes are disturbing. Small screen on back of seat in front of you has English subtitles.

Profound, Great acting, Great writing, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if you appreciate powerful psychological drama featuring tension between generations of non-documented immigrant families and military at war

Don't see it if (1)not fluent in Spanish,(2)incomplete, slow, unsychronized, unnuanced subtitles frustrate,(3)cannot sit 90 min. no interval,(4)violence bad

Extremely intense, Absorbing / engrossing, Excellent acting, Very resonant, Very relevant

See it if intense REAL drama gets you fired-up. Haven't seen such EXCELLENT ensemble acting in a small one-act play in AGES. Very real & very intense.

Don't see it if you can't handle the truth. I bitch A LOT about disliking no-intermissions but these 75min of HEAVY emotions will stay with you for a while. Read more

Intense, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Somewhat cliched

See it if your looking for an intense family drama or a piece on the military.

Don't see it if you can't handle torture scenes or dislike reading subtitles (if you don't speak Spanish). Read more

Absorbing, Edgy, Great staging, Great lighting, Intense

See it if you understand at least some Spanish (there are subtitles), you like good writing about a topic relating to military service & citizenship

Don't see it if you don't understand any Spanish, you don't like plays that deal with the military, torture, or war. Read more

Riveting, Resonant, Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if you like contemporary American tragedies about current events

Don't see it if you do not want to cry, to be angered, to be aroused about injustice

"A poignant depiction of how strongly the military and immigration are in fact linked—and the bleak outcomes that many immigrant service men and women are forced to confront...The play might not leave you feeling warm and fuzzy, but it will leave you with a crucial and thought-provoking message that needs to be heard...Don’t miss it—its message is something that we can’t afford to stay blind to."
