Published Reviews

"Provocative and Powerful!"

New York Times

"Gut-wrenchingly raw."

Military Writers of America

"Thoughtful. Raw power. Searing impact."

Variety

"Powerful high wattage theater. Scalding, moving, and highly entertaining. All it does is place hot-blooded life on the stage, a rare accomplishment that deserves to be lauded and, more importantly, seen."

Backstage

"In Emily Ackerman and KJ Sanchez's excellent documentary-theater work on Marines coming home from war, poor old 'imitation' gets a sharp kick in the nethers. Critic's Pick."
