September 16th, 2018

"A raucous yet insightful fantasia about military oppression taking its toll on the populace...The play is structured as 19 short, often absurdly funny and sometimes unsettling scenes, some lasting just a few seconds, that total 75 fascinating minutes...Araoz’s vibrant staging perfectly realizes Fornés’ vision...Araoz also crucially guides the vivid performances that are on display...Granados achieves a grand portrayal of a Brechtian everyman."
