"A meaningful attempt to dramatize the important story of wrongfully imprisoned Fernando Bermudez...The problem with the play lies in what Solnik has chosen to be the focus of the story...I have to wonder if the play would have been more successful if they had stuck to a completely factual or completely fictional story, rather than somewhere in between."

"Inspired by the wrongful 18-year imprisonment of Fernando Bermudez, who was falsely accused of murder, the play itself did not go into the details of the actual case. The potential writing talent of the playwright was unfortunately not evident. I found the 'Liberty' character personally offensive. The production missed the mark in many regards and failed to take advantage of the opportunity to take us on an emotional journey."
