In December, actress, comedy maker, writer and director Margôt Ros will perform exclusively in the Parktheater with her solo performance Brabantse nachten zijn lang. One thing is certain: it will be an evening to remember.

For those who want to make sure it will be fun, Margôt says it herself:

“In the middle of winter, we're going to make it sparkle in the Parktheater, the place where I once went on stage for the first time. Doing the conga line, we’ll dance by striking caricatures and hearty anecdotes from my youth, and 'our dad' will get his well-deserved leading role from me. I’ll bring fine, strong stories, and in the meantime, play a record and probably sing a little song. Perhaps we'll all sing together.

A tragicomic evening that will hover on the verge of being real and being absolutely made up. In my hometown. I aim for – hilarious, poignant, sparkling and sometimes painful. I’ll tell about family quarrels that get completely out of hand, the deflowering at carnival, the comforting sausage rolls, and other crown jewels of Brabant. Also fun for people who happen to come from somewhere outside of this region.

In Brabantse nachten zijn lang, you’ll see how you can celebrate life until the very last moment – ​​and that dying well is truly an art. It's going to be a fun night on my own. Together with you."
