Join us for a lively evening of drama, laughter, poetry and hope.
Hamlet and the grave diggers (presented in Dutch)
By William Shakespeare
Grave digger: Anne Heijnen
Grave digger: Alex Baum
Hamlet: Chris Hardeveld
Direction and adaption: 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!
As Angels Watch
By Jim MacNerland
Mary: Angelica Andersson
Joe: Aaron Wan
Victoria: Delphine Ural
enjamin: Alex Baum
Directed by Lydia Muijen
‘As Angels Watch’ was originally presented in Los Angeles. What seems to be a nice evening out for Joe and Mary slowly turns into something unexpected as Victoria and Benjamin 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 or bad.
Poetry Bites (presented in Dutch)
Nelly Versteeg: presentor
Anne Heijnen: presentor
Maarten Klomp: double bass
Director: Lydia Muijen
By David Ives
Betty: Vasiliki Votsika
Bill: Diego Best
Directed by Amr Maged
Get ready for a bunch of word play, odd paradoxes and romantic complications! In this magical comedy set whatever is said might be revoked, whatever is done could be reversed and no one really knows what is going on as Bill meets Betty. (‘Sure Thing’ was first presented at Manhattan Punch Line Theatre, New York City, in February 1988).
The Jewish Wife (presented in Dutch)
By Bertolt Brecht
Judith: Frieda Jacobowitz
Frits: Bobby Brown
Direction and adaptation: 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 .
