Wow! First off, let me begin by saying the cast and acting was OUTSTANDING. Sona and Roman were brilliant and every single member of the cast was excellent. Additionally, the costume, lightining, and stage setting were equally brilliant. Really...continued

Too much shouting instead of real acting. Continuity hard to follow. The "Troup" was mostly good.

Quotes & Highlights

“Playwright Dennis Miles imaginatively blends classical styles — from magic realism to Greek tragedy — to illuminate universal truths.” —Backstage (Critic’s Pick)
Strong performances…an elegy to lost love…full of heightened language and stylized charm.” —LA Weekly (Go!)
Sona Tera Roman Hess does have a sterling pedigree…There are some fine performances here… a marvelous feat of style and imagination." —


Sona Tera Roman Hess gives us a window to a time that is bold and frightening, vivid and spectacular, fantastic and deeply resonating. In language that is in turn grandiose and quietly poetic, playwright Dennis Miles has redrawn archetypal characters, grasping for purpose in a world that has no place for them. With elements reminiscent of magical realism and Greek tragedy, _Sona Tera Roman Hess _is a story of surviving betrayal and rediscovering hope.
