Husbands and wives at International Theater Amsterdam
Thursday, 21 February
A play on marriage, written by Woody Allen. A clash between the thirst for freedom and a craving for comfort and security. The play is in Dutch with English surtitling. After the performance members get an exclusive look behind the scenes.
One day you look up and it’s bad. Jack and Sally are getting divorced. We don’t want to make a big thing about it, they claim. It is a mutual decision, we’re both fine. But for their friends Gabe and Judy, it is an incredible shock. Is our marriage as good as we think it is, they wonder. Jack and Sally’s decision triggers a chain of events that profoundly uproots the lives of these four people.
Woody Allen wrote and directed Husbands and wives in the period just before his own relationship with Mia Farrow failed. Scenes in which the story develops are alternated by documentary scenes in which the characters are interviewed separately and look back on what happened.
19.30 Introduction by International Theater Amsterdam
20.00 – 22.15 Husbands and wives
22.30 Peek behind the scenes
