How can you continue to connect and support each other when bitter emotions such as sadness, anger and despair make their appearance?

What does it do to your relationship if you suffer the greatest imaginable loss together? The memorable, raw bestseller that A.F.Th. van der Heijden wrote about the loss of his 21-year-old son Tonio, has now been adapted for the theater.

In this performance, the parents’ search for how to survive through this together stands central. How can you continue to connect and support each other when bitter emotions such as sadness, anger and despair make their appearance? While the mother tries with all her might not to slip away into grief, the father hangs on to the gathering and recording of facts. Does the loss drive the parents apart, or will they be able to comfort each other?

Reviews:

"Two people on their own islets of sorrow" (Telegraaf ★★★)
"Jacqueline Blom and Porgy Franssen are very convincing as parents of the suddenly deceased Tonio" (Volkskrant ★★★)

  • Porgy Franssen is artist of the month at our restaurant Smaaktheater Dertien. His favorite dish, red cabbage and hachee, is on the menu throughout February.
