Eline Arbo brings the novel De Uren by Michael Cunningham to the stage. In her direction, Cunningham's loving literary observation becomes visible. She creates a world in which a writer shares the space with his characters.

De Uren takes place on one day in the lives of three different women, at three different moments in the 20th century. One woman is a book publisher, the other a housewife, and the third is the author Virginia Woolf. The three women each struggle with the question of how to be yourself in a world that feels like a straitjacket and search for freedom in their own way.

From the press:

"Remarkable accuracy of the staging." (Volkskrant ★★★★)

"De Uren by Eline Arbo and ITA leaves no one untouched." (Parool)

'This theater adaptation is not only oppressive and suffocating, but also beautiful and still topical.' - Telegraph

"Warm interpretation of human behavior." (Theaterkrant, The Critic's Choice)

  • With online introduction

 

''Beautifully empathetic.'' ★★★★
