Toronto Premiere – March 7-16, 2019


3/4 Stars – Makuch, Lundeen and MacKenzie have done a remarkable job of creating a theatrical experience that ties together a heritage journey with thoughtful commentary on a place tragically caught up in cycles of oppression and violence.”


Blood of Our Soil is a quietly remarkable event… tightly written, beautifully designed, and skillfully performed. It’s well worth your time to pick up the pieces.


Blood of Our Soil packs a punch… [Makuch’s] passion and creativity shine throughout the show.


I should make it clear that the play is not a propaganda piece crafted to instill patriotic fervor in a time of war. Rather, it is more of a study into the suffering inflicted upon the human psyche by the trauma of large-scale conflicts that are beyond the ability of most individuals to either understand or control… It is that process of sruvival that is the real crux of the play
