Until March of this year it was the most normal thing in the world: buy a ticket, put on your coat, rush to the theater, find your place, wait until dark, watch and listen to actors play a performance. Because of the corona virus, we know again how special a theater visit is and to meet each other there. To be together.
Magne van den Berg previously made two declarations of love to the public with Nicole Beutler, which are even more appropriate at this time. Declaration of love in 2014 and Declaration of love forever in 2018. Romana Vrede plays a compilation from the 2018 version. 'A gem to look forward to' (Telegraaf ★★★★).
Tom Pain (op niets gebaseerd)
Some people were born for happiness. Tom Pain is not one of those people. Through free association, he shares with the audience his unusual view about the daily struggle that is people’s search for happiness, when he himself is, every day, raw, unpolished and vulnerable. This solo piece was the hit of the 2004 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Guardian reviewer Lynn Gardner, ten years later, called it "still the best monologue I've ever seen". And the press responded: “Actor Bram Coopmans performs a real tour de force in the monologue Tom Pain” (Volkskrant ★★★★) and “A pearl to look forward to” (Telegraaf ★★★★).
Het Nationale Theater will be a guest for almost a week, takes over the Parktheater and gets to know our visitors.
- There is a break between the two performances
- Visit two different performances of Het Nationale Theater Speelt Altijd with a combination ticket for € 29.50 per person
- Safe at the theater: view the Corona measures for a safe and responsible theater visit.
