- Rich Massabny's Reviews

Director William Aitken keeps up a quick pace... [and]
creates a vivid sense of animosity and camaraderie in his talented ensemble
...vividly re-creates [the] uncertainty [of the Stalag] and the men who survived it...

- Washington Examiner

excellent set by Anndi Daleske
the company keeps the volume and energy up

- Washington City Paper

The American Century Theater is reviving the play in all of its original grittiness....
Jon Townson...[is] an intriguing character right up to the harrowing conclusion
Tony Bullock...takes full advantage of the contrasting elements in his character....
Bill Gordon...shows the strain of leadership well...
Director William Aitken...keep[s] embellishments to a minimum...a wise choice...
