Romeo & Julia is the first in a series of Shakespeare adaptations by director Lucas de Man. An Hackselmans (NTGent, Het Toneel Speelt, Ro Theater, TV series Adam & Eva and De vloer op) stars as Juliet and Sanne den Hartogh (Toneelgroep Oostpool) as Romeo. Please note that the play will be in Dutch.
“Do we dare to really choose love nowadays? My generation has grown up in freedom. But is that freedom truly freeing? This is the first time a generation is responsible for their own happiness. What do you choose when you can choose anything? And how do you know if you’ve made the ‘right’ choice? Behind the carefully constructed appearance of happiness and success lurks the fear to be hurt or left alone. And you are never more vulnerable than when you surrender yourself to true love.” – Lucas de Man
