Here is a production to restore our faith in live theater, and a play to restore our interest in new theater. Jose Rivera...an American playwright born in Puerto Rico--wrote EACH DAY DIES WITH SLEEP...it's real subject is the primitive human struggle between animal instincts and civilized order. The language poetic, intense, heightened, rude, stunted, funny, by turns--is always vivid. I simply testify that it is months since I was so worked up by characters in a play as here.... Rivera's play brings fresh imaginative vitality to the London theater. Its conception of the human condition as a psychic battleground--lively, funny, erotic, tragic--has a rare force. --Alastair Macaulay, Financial Times Surrealism, magic realism, expressionism, alternate-world realism--Rivera s tortured triangle of father, daughter and son-in-law writhes across the entire map of modern Hispanic literature, in a beautifully lofty English--unsettling, disturbing, rich with excitement and hope. --Michael Feingold, Village Voice
