  1. 5 out of 5

    Anton Segers

    Vijf nieuwe Amerikaanse theaterstukken geschreven door vrouwen. Alle vijf met vakmanschap geschreven, dat is hoopgevend voor een evolutie naar meer vrouwelijke theaterauteurs. Met meer ruimte voor emotie en kwetsbaarheid, maar ook verrassend veel hardheid. Vooral Dead and Breathing is een mooie, simultaan grappige en treffende toneeltekst.
