"squalid but neatly kept house, rendered in admirably precise detail by the designer Beowulf Boritt."
~Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"An expressive set by Beowulf Boritt establishes mise en scene as a miserable hovel in the middle of a war zone. Inside this one-room shack: a tiny coal-burning stove, a few sticks of mismatched furniture, one sturdy marital bed (with a colorful, treasured quilt), a prized toilet and an open bookcase stuffed with files. Outside: cratered ground, blasted trees, exploding shells -- and rows of graves."
~Marilyn Stasio, Daily Variety

"Beowulf Boritt's evocative set, which contrasts warm hues of red and turquoise with the bleak greyness of the surrounding world, has texture and surprise."
~The New Yorker
