"...The members of Theatre Mir were clearly making a statement when they chose this worthwhile but difficult piece for their inaugural production. If only the show itself were as clear. Though Rob Chambers's cast undoubtedly have the craft to tell Edgar's tale of negotiations aimed at heading off ethnic bloodshed in a fictional Balkan state--and may yet bring it to bear--they undercut themselves on opening night by trying to take their dialect-heavy speeches too fast. That plus some unfortunate role-doubling led to a garbled statement."

"...Staged with energy and speed by Rob Chambers, The Prisoner's Dilemma requires attention and astute listening due to its content and its array of reasonably authentic European accents not always easy to understand. It challenges audiences to become intellectually engaged more than emotionally invested. This is theateróboth the play and Mirówith a head on its shoulders."

"...Sean Sinitski is terrific as a think-tank academic turned remorseless soldieróas are Mira Vasiljevic and Yosh Hayashi as antagonist counterparts facing off over a negotiating table that shifts in size and meaning. But ultimately their tactics are undermined by the absence of a gripping narrative arc."
