Press

“Morgan Baker is as affectingly tender as the doctor as he is intimidating in the role of Police Capt. John Bonfield. Judson Jones and Birgit Huppuch bring a suppressed anguish to their roles, an almost unbearable intimation of their [characters’] shattered possibility for happiness.”
New York Times
“Dohrn bravely imagines the trauma of the event; [the] play raises plenty of essential and timeless questions. Judson Jones is excellent.”
NYTheatre.com
“Compelling… [An] important piece of history.”
Theatermania.com
“Dennis McNitt, Birgit Huppuch, and Judson Jones all do sensitive, understated work.”
New York Sun
“Captivating… Direction by Robert Saxner skillfully interweaves the many scenes and different characters so that the tale can be experienced from both sides, and fabulous costumes by Victoria Tzykun authenticate the time period.”
