PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Opening July 27th - Provocative and compelling, this arresting work deals with a subject much in the minds of contemporary society -- the taking of innocent hostages by political terrorists. First presented by California's innovative La Jolla Playhouse, the play illuminates both the numbing agony of the one detained and also the helpless fury of those who are left behind -- loved ones impatient for something to be done, and officials who feel they must be guided by logic rather than emotion.

Atlantans, make up your own mind

I haven't seen this play, but because the forums don't seem to be generating any discussions, let me say here that I totally agree with the admonition of the previous reviewer to go see for yourself and make up your own mind. I could fill a book with the names of plays I've seen and loved that the AJC panned. They are more often than not way off base. I plan to see both offerings of ATA.

AJC?

I don't know what show the guy from the AJC saw - he is way off base. He seemed to miss the whole point if you ask me .... it's not an historical play. The production is much better than he says - go see for yourself. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

This is the best play I've seen in Atlanta since I moved here two years ago. The theater they perform in is first rate. All the actors were believable and totally sucked me into the events of the play. I had never heard of Actors Theater of Atlanta, but if this is their first season, what are they going to be like when they have some experience? I highly recommend this play to anyone who really loves theater - I haven't seen anything better since I moved here. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

I went to this show after seeing THE GOOD DOCTOR last week. I have gone to theatre since I was very young. This play was so very interesting. There is a performance in this play by an Atlanta actress named Rhoda Griffis that should not be missed! The whole cast is very good. There was a small crowd at the performance, but this new theatre company deserves to be seen - don't miss this show! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
