Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A marvelous duo of newcomers, Mark J. Sullivan and Aaron Jennings, and television veteran Charlie Robinson give their all to this award-winning drama as they connect with the themes in the script—loss, anger, violence, hope, and the search for reinvention. The soldier happens to be Jewish. The time happens to be Passover. But can the story of the faith and deliverance of a shackled people be shared across a racial divide? This L.A. Theatre Works performance offers the sounds of an uncompromising, passionate theatrical experience. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
