Between the costumes and lighting this was a visually stunning play, and the script was impressive in that almost every word rhymed. This piece was an interesting contrast to the play 8:03. 8:03 was pure physical comedy with no dialogue. Dogs of War represents the opposite extreme; it's all about the language. And I especially enjoyed the performances of the "joker" and the lead lady, Rebecca. ... full review

This show was more than I had hoped for. The actors where amazingly developed in their characters and brought depth to the already rich dialogue. The costumes where really cohesive, bringing the story's characters together into a futuristic, steam-punk, three penny opera. The sound really worked for the story, perhaps reminding us of a dark, strange, future. The richness of the script reminds you that you are watching a play, in a good way, through the use of rhyme, meter, song and style. It seemed a little long for the festival, though it seems like it could run longer on its own. Looking forward to future work from this troupe.... full review

I really enjoyed Dogs of War. The writing was sharp and provocative. I really enjoyed the acting as well. Specifically the woman who played Heidi and the young man who played Valdez. They really got underneath the words and we're moving to say the least. I enjoyed the ensemble and the costuming was fantastic. Really glad I got to see this intelligent and inspiring production. Great work!... full review

Wife loved it; I was glad they kept their promise that it would be done in 90 minutes. We agreed that the guy with the box had the best enunciation; he spoke his rhymes slowly and/or clearly enough to have them be well-understood. ... full review
