Ramos in an interview with Steve Paterson of broadwayworld.com, “The story is about the last 23 years of Geronimo's life when he was a P.O.W. in his own country. I wanted to tell his side of the story. In the play, you will hear how he felt about being pushed out of his home, the many broken promises by the U.S Army, and the heartbreak he felt when the Mexican Army killed his mother, wife and three children, historical facts not known by many. I wanted to give him the voice he never had, the voice he deserves, the voice that has never been heard. He was a great leader. GERONIMO tells the story of a wrong committed against a whole race of people that America would like to forget - something that is still happening today.”
