"The soldier and the girl, the girl and the soldier. Of such are many plays and movies made to warm the heart over many years.... A SILENT THUNDER, the quite heartwarming play.... The girl works in a tailor shop in Okinawa, which is where the play is set in 1966, during the Vietnam War.... The Marine is Cpl Joe Santana, a Puerto Rican American orphan." Jerry Tallmer, New York Post

"This sweet tale by playwright Eduardo Ivan Lopez becomes so much more than the tried-and-true serviceman's one-night-stand becoming true love. His characters are original because they rebel from the identities fate has dealt them and are consciously trying to become the people they desire to be. The script becomes universal because Mr. Lopez uses war effectively as a symbol of personal disillusionment and social injustice. He makes love between these two strikingly different characters seem like the most natural thing in the world." Kris Oser, New York Law Journal

Originally produced by the Apple Corps, New York City.
