"Villanueva has woven a story as complex as the issues it tackles. It is a story that challenges our ideas of masculinity and femininity, parental expectations, birth order, the wounded softness of family home life against the harsh comfort of war. The playwright takes her audience on a broad scoping journey of global proportions and then gathers up all those far reaching threads to focus on the story of her characters' most personal desires. This is a play for our time – the time of America's constant love affair with war."
