    A moving journey of survival with a lesson on what we hold on to and who it ends up hurting. Powerful and well done.

    Beautifully theatrical in its use of flexible time and space, powerful double-casting of certain characters, potent moments of audio and visual stimulation that heighten and help tell the story, and well-executed narration by a figure whose emotional stakes in the story become clear in a revealing and dynamic way. The narrative is consistently compelling and manages to interview the personal, political, and historical seamlessly. Gripping and begs to be seen live!

    Nelson Diaz-Marcano is fast becoming one of may favorite playwrights. This play is so raw, so real, so emotionally driven and and important narrative of a part of history we don't talk about enough; a part of history we should talk about more often. This play needs to be seen, experienced and never forgotten!
