"Knuppels en Gekakel" Theater Poster

The title is really quite hard to translate…

“Knuppels” are sticks or bats to hit someone with and there is a Dutch expression where this refers to “Een knuppel in het hoenderhok gooien” - literally: throwing a stick in a hen house which means something like stirring things up. “Gekakel” is the sound hens make. So make of that what you want… :)

It’s a play about prejudice and intolerance, but very funny and with lots of music.

The “hens”, in this case, are the three actresses and creators of the play. I knew one of them. We used to dance tango together.

I still haven’t seen the play itself. Hope that changes soon….
