What rights does a person have who only comes in on Sundays to carve the roast? When we are all trying to eat less meat? And does a stylishly trimmed moustache carry any authority these days? Comedian and theatre maker Minou Bosua [1969] likes to explore the new pillars of society. Supporting her is actor Eelco Smits [1977], and this project sees the two of them playing house, but next level. In the incisive, funny preview of Niet de vaders van Jimmy Parker they are prying away at traditional family role patterns. As an additional troubleshooting force, they have included a gay men’s choir from Brabant, purpose-erected for this show, and singing comforting tearjerkers for old-school and brand-new dads alike. In 2018 Minoux opened the Moeder, Vader, Kinderen trilogy with Moeder mag niet dood.
