An unexpected meeting at an airport leads to an intense and passionate love affair. Soon the young woman (Hadewych Minis) and her great love start to settle down. They buy a house, get married, have two children and juggle careers. The life they have built together is happy and comparable to many, but gradually the fairy tale crumbles and their lives take a disturbing turn.

The acclaimed Girls & Boys by playwright Dennis Kelly is like a contemporary anti-Medea. A monologue that starts as a hilarious fairy tale and turns into an unimaginable nightmare.

Anger as fuel

With Girls & Boys Oostpool brings the Dutch premiere of Dennis Kelly's play published in 2018. Director Daria Bukvić decided it was time to bring this theatrical cry for help about male violence to Dutch theatres. -|- With anger as fuel, humour as catalyst and humanity as goal. Confrontational, but above all permeated with affection, with an urgent call to love each other and life.

Hadewych Minis

The impressive and musical solo performance Girls & Boys is perfect for multi-talented Hadewych Minis. Minis won her first Gouden Kalf for her role in the movie Borgman and the second for her portrayal of Rachel Hazes in Bloed, Zweet en Tranen. She recently toured clubs and theaters with personal solo shows. After the musical solo Minis Plus, Hadewych doet de dames followed in 2020, 'a passionate ode to Dutch female singers'. She also conquered the Netherlands with her participation in the AVROTROS tv program Maestro.
