Our beautiful theatre in the middle of the Amsterdam forest is open! Get out of the city and into the woods for the best theatre performances, music, food and drinks surrounded by age old trees. This summer Toneelgroep Oostpool treats us to a spectacular, humorous show dealing with Dutch history: Hollandsch Glorie.
For Pieter (Thijs Römer), it seemed like a good idea at the time. A ‘national history museum park’ where you can see, in the form of a play, how our forefathers lived. Entertaining and educational: a magical mix! His show in the Hollandsch Glorie park has been a huge hit, and has run for ten years now. Then 2021 comes along, and suddenly everyone’s angry. Pieter had no idea people could get angry with history. But now it’s like the whole of the Netherlands, in all its polarised disunity, has an outspoken opinion on his show. Together with his actors, Pieter has to go in search of a new take on Dutch history. One that will finally be able to bring the country together. Pieter embarks on a titanic struggle to save his life’s work, but a confrontation with the spirit of our age seems inevitable.
Oostpool’s entire artistic team have spliced the mainbrace and climbed the rigging to create an epic satire that pulls us deep into the quagmire of Holland’s history. Marvel at epic sea battles, tragic love stories, tractors, aliens and maybe even the odd flash or two of insight. All set against a gigantic backdrop in the most beautiful open-air theatre in the world.
