  9. Congratulations on a well written and directed play. Poignant look into two different forms of asylum: the public and the private. Worth seeing.

  10. I went to see it last night. Woke up today and I’m still thinking about it. The situation that characters are in is so relatable on so many levels to so many people. I absolutely loved it. And honestly I haven’t even noticed how time flew watching it.

  11. I recently had the pleasure of attending the play “Asylum” at the Hellenic Art Theater, and I must say, it was a truly captivating experience. From start to finish, this play, written, directed, and performed fabulously, deserves nothing less than the big stage and the attention of thousands of eyes.

    The story of “Asylum” is deceptively simple yet deeply impactful. It explores a heart-wrenching triangulation in which everyone can find their own reflection. The incredibly crafted triangle of victim, prosecutor, and rescuer is a part of everyone’s life in one way or another, and it was portrayed on stage with simple yet familiar decorations. The use of light and stage drawing further enhanced the emotional depth of this soulful triangle.

    I cannot recommend this play enough. It made me ponder deeply and question myself on topics such as truth, responsibility, the balance between obeying the law and adhering to humanistic principles, and the clash between personal morality and social responsibility. “Asylum” offers something for everyone, allowing each individual to find their own meaning within its thought-provoking narrative.

    If you have the chance, I highly encourage you to witness this exceptional production firsthand. Prepare to be moved, challenged, and inspired by the power of “Asylum” at the Hellenic Art Theater.

  17. Hi Ruth, I have shared the link with all theatre loving friends. I have posted the review in my wall too.

    The powerful story by Ruth Fingret comes to life on the stage more powerfully with some impeccable, tight and absorbing acting by some extremely talented artists. The director has done an amazing job intertwining the lives of the characters, which begins as loose threads, but gets tighter and tighter as the play progresses. The power packed performances of each actor is a lesson in itself. The different layers of a character’s personality and the transition of one emotion to another was so deftly performed ! Absolutely loved it.

  18. Fantastic thought-provoking script coupled with brilliant performances. Congratulations to all involved !

  19. That was just amazing! Superb direction and scintillating performance by all actors. It’s such an amazing storyline intertwined from the onset scene! of the play to the final scene. Ruth, you delivered a masterpiece in here. Well done 👏

    One statement, “ASYLUM – A MUST WATCH” play!!

  20. A very tricky topic handled in a highly innovative way!!!
    This play takes a hard look at a complex problem and examines the moral dilemmas faced by both sides of the immigration/detention/asylum issue.
    A great cast takes you to what appears to be the obvious place then transports you somewhere else – somewhere you may never have imagined.
    Hey, it’s raining and this is a wonderful, locally written, produced, directed and performed piece of theatre in a beautiful space.
    I highly recommend seeing it…
