What I liked

The story is unfortunately a very familiar scenario in our current culture, and this play took a nuanced compassionate look at this problem. I feel that a faction of liberals in recent times has forgotten that compassion is supposed to be one of our core values. This show reminds us what can happen, and the difference that can be made, when we attack with compassion. Pierce Minor delivers a superb, understated performance and the supporting cast delivers top notch work. Special kudos to the actors playing hostages for remaining in character and always being interesting without ever pulling focus. That is not as easy as it sounds and they were all excellent.

What I didn't like

N/A

My overall impression

Well executed, tense thriller that doesn’t go exactly where you think it’s going to go.
