Texas Monthly: "A New Quixote Adaptation Reimagines The Borderlands"
Michael Agresta, Texas Monthly
Octavio Solis: "It feels like I’m making this Quixote a warrior for people who have no voice, for people who are disenfranchised. He stands for the uninsured, the unemployed, and the undocumented, for people who are oppressed, for people who are poor...that was actually true of Quixote in the novel, so when you update it and you center it along the border, it takes a very different cast. It feels like he’s speaking for the people that have been demonized, that have been caged, that have been disenfranchised simply because they speak a different language or because they look different."
Houston Chronicle: "Best Houston Theatre 2019"
Wei-Haun Chen, Houston Chronicle
"I loved this play. It was a terrific drama about three characters wrestling with age and health. It was also a timely moral examination on our relationship with our environment — and how we should take responsibility if we mess things up. Playing three former nuclear scientists tasked with a difficult decision, Susan Koozin, John Feltch and Sally Burtenshaw showed off terrific chemistry with one another."
