    An exquisite piece on the experience of entering a new country as a refugee. Well done.

    Soltero-Brown’s talent for dialogue that gets to the heart of the characters’ intentions serves him well in this terse, hard-hitting piece. Sparse, rhythmic, and darkly poetic in language, while still doing justice to its subject matter. I hope to see it in the hands of a director and actors sooner rather than later—it demands to be seen, and I can only imagine the intense experience that watching it would be.

    The amount of tension Soltero-Brown maintains during this interview is astounding. This dialogue is magnificent and I would like to see actors tackle this. I also think this is a very important play and it should be produced TODAY.
