by Jim MacNerland


Benjamin – Alex Baum

Joe – Aaron Wan

Mary – Angelica Andersson

Victoria – Delphine Ural


Directed by Lydia Muijen



What seems to be a nice evening out for Joe and Mary slowly turns into something unexpected as Victoria and Ben share some of the medical information they are privy to. When it comes to life and responsibilities, things are hardly ever  black and white or for that matter, good and bad.

The Jewish Woman (NL) 

by Bertolt Brecht


Judith – Frieda Jacobowitz

Frits – Bobby Brown


Direction and adaptation by Annebel Venmans


In 1935, Germany was confronted with the Nuremberg Race Laws. We know which population these laws were primarily aimed at, with the aim of exclusion and destruction. Bertolt Brecht described the consequences that this had for a “mixed marriage” in a poignant way .

A girl asks something, a guy rejects her, should she stop?

Will they have a proper conversation to finish this play?! Sure thing!  

How? Let’s start it all over! A guy asks something….

Hamlet (scene) (NL) 

by William Shakespeare


Gravedigger – Anne Heynen

Gravedigger – Gerrit Visser

Hamlet – Chris Hardeveld


Direction and adaptation by Annebel Venmans


Meet Hamlet briefly? You can! 

After a journey, he returns to the palace and meets two gravediggers there. They dig a grave for a young woman and tell a hundred stories about life and death. Humor with a serious undertone, Shakespeare can do that!
