“A notable cutting dramatic comedy, with double-edged (…) In the veristic, bereaved and kamikaze performance of Chema Muñoz, Luis is an elusive man, and his loquacity, cover of a troubled waters of emotions (…) The work of each one is measured almost perfectly to that short distance imposed by the hall of the Teatro Lara (…) in sum, a good taste in inquisitiveness and way of writing, half-way between the well-done play and the post dramatic theater, that characterizes this new generation.”

Javier Vallejo, El País 22/05/14

Mejor historia que la nuestra is a play that shouldn’t miss the lovers of bare theater; simple, sentimental, a little bit sad but with humour and very well performed: Chema Muñoz, Mamen Camacho, Antonio de Cos and Paloma Zavala.”

Javier Villán, Diario de Javier Villán

“A sort of August: Osage County by Tracy Letts in a Spanish way (…)Its streght is in the simplicity of the manners, in the suggested thing of the not-said words, in the warmth of the interpretation within the dry thing (…) Mamen Camacho provides a superb guiding light in her scenes, she’s generous in her listening and bright in her moments of reserved emotion (…) An energetic direction and staging, without secondary ornaments, where there are genuine moments.”

Laura Maure, Revista Magenta

“Served with a illumination and correct changes of pace in the text, the plot advances, turning us in more addicted to those personalities so much different that the author has created in this text (…) an excelent acting work (…) Mamen Camacho, splendid in her role, performs an intense and heartbreaking Maite.“

Iduna Ruiz de Martín, Ábrete Sésamo.

“A precise and cutting text, a maze of perpetual incommunication that the the author, Lucía Carballal, gets to express in a exquisit way. The watchful eye of Francesco Carril, director of the staging, adds even more quality (…) It’s about wastes of life and the Luis‘ illness, performed by a flawless and magnetic Chema Muñoz, that, in turn, exposes the tension he has with his daughter Maite, a very plausible Mamen Camacho (…) Antonio de Cos, an actor increasingly more complete, with an infinity of register and a future well directed by the tenacity and work, who stands out as the understanding husband of Maite.“

Mejor Historia que la nuestra is presented as fertile and expressive in its possibilities of staging. Without falling in the self-satified exercises of the post dramatism, so much in vogue nowadays, Lucía Carballal seems to bring to Spain one of the most effective symbol of the American playwriting of 20th century, that stands in those oppressive and anguished family environments where have developed their master plays since Eugene O’Neil to Tennesse Williams. Well directed by Francesco Carril and performed with solvency by his notable cast.”

Antonio Morales, PE Magazine

“… excelent work of direction, each movement, each thinking, each step, are as little chess movements that in this occasion will finally get the checkmate to the king (…) An emotive play, with a great text that reflects about the need of good-bye (…) The work of Chema Muñoz is amazing, he gives a lesson of interpretation with a near proposal, believable, full of nuances, with a dramatic load hard to get and keep…“

Estrella Savirón, A golpe de efecto

“ If I said that the direction of Francesco Carril is exquisite, and the staging is as real as effective, I want to point out the slight work he made with the four actors (…) Antonio de Cos is a very warm actor and also an added value to any play (…) Paloma Zavala, a very plastic actress, gives voice and gesture to Paula in a very cheeky way (…) A very good play, without a doubt.“

Luis Muñoz Díez, Revisa Tarántula.

“ A deep analysis about the end of the journey (…) Besides a good actoral work (the whole quartet, but I think Mamen Camacho is excellent, for her double role to herself and to the other ones), director plays to experiment very well with various types of transitions, not reluctantly accepting an only format (…) A company that has gone growing up and now they offer one of their best proposal, maybe the best one yet, and it’ll be, probably, a proof of their consolidation in our stages.“

Julio Castro, La República Cultural


entreacto

“ A beautiful performance that make us enjoy a staging full of humanity and taste for the optimism, beyond the painful that the proposal is (…) A proposal that sets out several debates that, as it happens with the well-told stories, still going on when the show has finished (…) The play gives us unforgettable moments. Small delights that you can contemplate and enjoy grateful (…) Great interpretations full of honesty and wonderful, although painful, proximity.“

José Antonio Alba, En un entreacto.

“ It’s outstanding the success of the playwright to talk about a topic so much tragic with not very weepy dialogues (…) Francesco Carril show himself in a direction between modest and poetic. He has a very clear aesthetic that mixes all the actors with the space. As a simple exercise of mimetism between the characters and their environment, we’ll see how the layers of the characters fall to reveal each one next to each other, accepting them, inevitably.”

Luis Andrés, Ociogay

“A prodigious direction of Francesco Carril (…) Chema Muñoz gets a excellent creation. Vocally, he’s a prodigy, his attitude, natural, painful, no self-satisfied, wise and cruel in equal measure, and with the selfish craving of that one who already knows is distant from the life.“

David García, Desde el patio
