Beautiful and thought provoking. This is not my favorite style of theatre (it's quite abstract), but that being said, I was thoroughly engaged and captivated the entire time. The cast is so strong (particularly Ashe, Baker and Alexander) and the work they do with the script is stunning. There are some truly incredible scenes, and the whole thing will definitely have you walking away discussing what you just saw. Absolutely worth seeing, this is committed, defined art first and foremost. Beautiful work ladies, you are all amazing. ... full review

I'm very glad I caught this final performance of Occupation. It was disturbing, engaging, and served as a wake-up alarm as to what could happen if fear is the stronger force in our political system and culture. It felt kind of like a Margaret Atwood world. It would be great to develop the story further for future projects. ... full review

I wonder if producer Jennifer Ashe realized how topical this play actually is? Perhaps not in America but in many places in our "modern world", these kinds of realities exist. The cast brings to life: death, loss of family, and loss of self. The actors' strong personalities are used for and against each other expressing common grief. I enjoyed the play and was grateful to see in the face of tragedy the human spirit has the compassion and desire to willingly give the gift of hope. "Occupation" is well acted and David Robinson effectively directed this space in the very real world of today. -- Jim Hahn... full review
