“A dissection of the complex tangle of politics, history and art, alongside and intermingled with a veritable census survey of world refugees, David Edgar’s Pentecost is a play with a lot on its mind. The Evidence Room, perhaps the hottest L.A. theater company of the moment, proves up to the task of taking it on, with artistic director Bart DeLorenzo staging this big work with a consistently good – and did I mention big? – ensemble of 23. There’s a seriousness at work here that’s not just admirable but genuinely compelling, with the actors keeping the intensity level of Edgar’s broad-ranging arguments high throughout.” – Steven Oxman, Variety

Los Angeles premiere at the Evidence Room, May 2002
