Wow! I don't know where to begin. It was so intense. Amazingly good actors and story! They just draw you right into it and you go through so many emotions. I can tell you I was not the only one to shed a few tears. I was quite surprised there...continued

Review from EmDub

On the plus side, the actors were very talented. On the negative, the play itself was too dogmatic, too Catholic biased, and overly dramatic. I left with very mixed feelings about the production and the Theatre.

It was wonderful! I saw it twice and referred others, who also loved it. The seating is wonderful, the stage is great and the actors were superb!

This was my first time at the Open Window Theatre. It's a great little intimate theatre, and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The production was wonderful and very moving. It had a very strong cast and I have a hard time saying who...continued

Review from Brian Hanson

Based on a true story with the focus being on the redemption of the murderer. Minimal set in a box type theater with seating on either side. Unfortunately they constantly black out the set for each scene change which were many and really...continued

It's too bad this play doesn't get reviews in the local papers (to my knowledge), because if it did, I believe they would be very positive. I thought all of the actors were excellent, as was the writing and directing. My kudos to all involved! I...continued

Difficult evening with heavy handed writing, leaden direction enough sermonizing to appeal only to the most limited of audiences. David Coral and others in the cast were better than the material.

Well done! Engrossing play and performance. Another great project from Open Window's professional cast.

Review from ConnieD

Although I should have probably guessed that this play was going to have strong religious messages given that it was about the murder of a young girl who was declared a saint by the Catholic Church, I think that the treatment was heavy-handed and...continued

Review from Rose

There wasn't a dry eye in the room because the actors are amazingly intense which get you so emotionally involved with Maria's life story. Please familiarize yourself with her story before choosing to bring children to this. I would not recommend...continued

Review from Claire W Correll

Mercy Unrelenting was a wonderful experience. The theater is great! Not a bad seat in the theater. I like theater that makes you think in addition to entertainment. This provided both. This is a high priority play!

Outstanding performance by these actors, and we especially enjoyed the second half. The venue was very fun.
