Extended By Popular DemandLA Times – “[Under] Matt McKenzie’s assured direction of a fine cast, the piece finds its most intimate perspective on Sarah’s death in the emotional aftermath for her family.”  — Philip Brandes

LA Weekly’s Pick of the Week calls Sarah’s War a production of “well-calibrated pacing” and “solid performances.

Backstage West’s Critic’s Pick. “Dillman’s play is provocative and full of affecting scenes. The title character (Abica Dubay) is depicted as an idealist so naively passionate that her death seems almost inevitable. Sarah’s mother, Ann (Terry Davis), is tormented by conflicts and a desperate need to know what really happened. And Danny, the driver of the fatal bulldozer (Will Rothhaar), becomes a tormented figure with deep-seated doubts about the justice of his mission.” —Neal Weaver
