THE STORY: Kelly, an idealistic young woman and a survivor of rape and attempted murder by South American revolutionaries, is visited three years after the attack by the conservative mother of Tracy, the other victim. Slowly, the survivor and mother dance through their grief at losing Tracy, while negotiating the truth of what brought the two young women together, why they undertook their dangerous humanitarian mission, and what happened on that final day.
"While my heart broke and tears streamed down my face, I felt as though the play was also forcing me to see beauty. Essentially, this play kicks the living crap out of you while asking you to acknowledge the softest, sweetest, most vulnerable human parts of this world." - Autostraddle.com
"Dramatic and gripping. Adam's script gives us a lot to chew over...very moving." - IndieTheatreNow.com.
"SANS MERCI skillfully blends pairs of opposites. It challenges our minds while touching our hearts, pits a young woman from one end of the political spectrum against an older woman from the opposite end, and balances serious issues with deft moments of light humorAdams earns our pity honestly through her plays clear-eyed vision of an indifferent world." - Orange County Register (Los Angeles, CA).
