Järnbörd

By Magnus Dahlström

Pressröster om uppsättningen av Magnus Dahlströms drama Järnbörd på Göteborgs stadsteater:

"Detta är det grymmaste, mest omskakande jag sett på teatern, och samtidigt något av det bästa. /---/ Detta är en textual content som inte väjer för någonting. Som säger ut det som inte kan sägas, trampar mark som inte får beträdas, öppnar dörrar som inte får öppnas - och som ändå inte låtsas finna vare sig sanningar eller förklaringar."
Ingegärd Waaranperä i Dagens Nyheter

"Människan har varit ett långsinnat och vidrigt litet kryp genom årtusendena.
Man vill gärna hoppas att hon blivit bättre. Mycket bättre! Den som vill fortsätta med den illusionen ska kanske undvika ’Järnbörd’. De som är sanningssökare måste se den."
