“…On the Grounds of Belonging isn’t an “issues” play; it is moving, alive, hopeful, and human, and speaks to our time loud and clear. It also marks the first play of the first season with artistic director Jacob G. Padrón firmly at the helm of Long Wharf Theatre. As a marker of what’s to come — from the choice of play, to the way it’s performed, to the involvement a vibrant and dedicated audience — it feels like a sign of a venerable theater striking out in a bold direction under younger, clear-eyed leadership. It feels rejuvenating, like a fresh start.”  — NEW HAVEN INDEPENDENT 10/17/19
