REVIEWS/ARTICLES

New York Times: “Evenhanded…both the United States and Israel…come off as basically decent. Pollard supporters and detractors can find fuel for their arguments in Mr. Blank’s narrative.”

TheatreMania: “It’s as satisfying as any spy movie and twice as smart.”

Washington Jewish Week by David Levesley: “[Martin] Blank’s characters drive the play’s drama with their struggle to reconcile paradoxical beliefs…These are just the sort of Big Questions live theater was meant to take on.”

DC Theatre Scene by Jeffrey Walker: “The Law of Return is about family. It looks at protecting the family and it’s definitely about information and what is a person’s responsibility to protect people.”
