The 3 actors were fantastic! This is a very heavy drama about 3 men taken as hostages in a foreign country. It made you think about people like John McCain and Nelson Mandela, what it must have been like for them and how they survived. The play...continued

A fine play depicting how three hostages cope with their imprisonment in Lebanon. Only 3 actors, all excellent.

Very tiny theater (rehearsal space, actually) - 2 blocks of seating, 1 facing stage, 1 on the side, five rows each of stadium...continued

Very intense and emotional topic, with extremely good actors and lots of very moving moments. Extremely well done. Small theater so all seats are good seats. Well worth it.

A very intense and emotional piece, especially given the length and lack of intermission. Really well-staged in a minimalist/black box/bare bones space. Very talented cast.

Very well-acted! Definitely not for the faint of heart - it gives an accurate portrayal of what happens to people after a long imprisonment. But I found it thought-provoking.

Thought-provoking, very well-acted, and surprisingly funny at times. My friend and I were both at a loss for words when we left, something that rarely happens to either of us.

This play was excellent. Much more than I ever expected. These three young men were mesmerizing, each in their own parts. I could not have asked for a better performance than what we got. There were moments when it was so mesmerizing I could...continued

While the premise of this play sounds rather spare (3 men of different nationalities held hostage, chained to a wall in an empty room in the Beirut), it is beautifully written, laced with wit, and ultimately it is quite moving. It explores the...continued
