Two Tonne Theatre presents
By Iain Bloomfield & Lucy Hind
Imagine wanting all your life to visit Italy, the country of your dreams. Imagine boarding your plane – you’ve saved for months, bought new clothes, read all the guide books – only to be told on touchdown that you’re in The Netherlands…
‘The Netherlands’ isn’t about travel, it’s about being the parent of a child with a learning disability in an often unhelpful world. It’s about finding out, despite yourself, that The Netherlands is a beautiful, wonderful country.
First created eight years ago, ‘The Netherlands’ has been reworked and updated after extensive conversations, tea and cake, with parents across the North of England.
This is a play that will speak to everyone who has known the magnificent, terrifying, joyful, heart-breaking chaos that is becoming a parent.
‘The Netherlands’ is supported by Arts Council England, Mind the Gap, Interplay Theatre and Cast Doncaster.
