2018: ( "Alin Balascan plays every male role in the play which is of great diversity - from German generals to a Romanian peasant, he manages to change voice and accent but always staying true to the characters - what a feat." 2017: ( "Balascan is a natural actor from the beginning, but becomes truly engaging in moments of tense drama: he seems to entertain and question both himself and us, causing the audience to forget what a strain a one-man show can be. The ending is extraordinarily surprising... and chilling."
