But what if there are no more theatres at all? Het eind van het begin van het einde (The end of the beginning of the end) desperately tries to suggest something as a performance. Maybe the very last story can still be saved or there is even a way back. Who is willing to help?

Enter the world of award-winning director Jetse Batelaan. As original as he is funny, he stretches the limits of fantasy. His work is radical and ground-breaking. At home and abroad he received several prizes for his work, including the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale.

In the press

"The end of the beginning of the end is vintage Jetse Batelaan. The Dutch director is the master of metatheatre. Time and again he succeeds miraculously in fooling around with all the laws of the stage, in a way that makes both children and adults dizzy and laugh" - De Standaard ★★★★★

"During the corona crisis, Batelaan succeeded in producing a large-scale production that urgently reflects the period during which there was no theatre for months. - De Standaard ★★★★★

"This performance is, as it were, the last theatrical performance, a farewell ritual, painful and melancholy, but also extremely hilarious and touching". - Theaterkrant

"Apocalyptic, absurd, clever, witty and so ruthless. And for the first time in times a real premiere feeling" - Audience reaction
