“a stroke of beauty on the Toronto stage…El Retorno/I Return personalizes the struggle of political refugees, making a complex question – how do you fight for the freedom and peace of your country – into a simple, but hard-hitting, family drama.”

“These kinds of stories are what should be populating Toronto stages; it not only speaks to experience of Latin Canadians, but also to the many bodies worldwide still seeking refuge.”
