MAID: “In my country this is impossible. Even if they are far away or dead there is no day a father or a mother does not talk about their children, parents, dead, missing or exiled siblings or they do not think about them. Every day they talk or want to talk to them. The living and the dead. It is a need and a treasure.” (Sixth Scene)

“Forasters has a generally commendable and risky performance.”

“Ivan Labanda, Patricia Arredondo, Jordi Martínez and Andrés Herrera defend their characters well.”


“The acting team does a titanic and pleasant work.”

“Ivan Labanda has a vibrant energy.”
