"a riveting soul-searching work of theatre."

- Beate Hein Bennett, New York Theatre Wire

"Moving and scary...Margolin agilely weaves the different time periods and character conflicts."

- Joel Benjamin,

"...sketches parallels between the personal and the political in its compelling rendition of a story at once intimate and with far-reaching resonances."

- John R. Ziegler and Leah Richards, Thinking Theater NYC

"...dramatic, gripping energies...This is Not a Time of Peace is an evening of reflection, intrigue, oligarchs, victims, heroes, time travel, and tragedy."

- Ed Kliszus, Front Row Center

this is not a time of peace is a play about unrest. A story of love between a father and his daughter, it moves in concentric circles of turbulence: within a country, within a marriage, within the mind of one woman, struggling to save her father from memories of his country’s betrayal while committing a sexual betrayal of her own. What part of each of us is capable of committing the crimes of any one of us? Do the forces that hold a union together serve also to destroy it?
