Lucas de Waard [‘s-Hertogenbosch, 1984] was probably conceived behind the local Remington typewriter factory: he’s always ready to write. He has typed up tantalising texts for the likes of Cojones [VARA], Het Zuidelijk Toneel and Bos Theaterproducties. In 2016 his musical Willem Ruis; de show van zijn leven won a Musical Award for Best Script. His debut novel De Kamers appeared in 2015. The sequel Kraaien tellen is set for release over the summer.
With his literary revue De Waard en zijn Gasten XL Lucas doused a crowded Boulevard Theater in improvisation and ink in 2016. The best Dutch writers and musicians read from their work, were interviewed and played music. Because it was so successful the show has been upgraded to XL-status. Remington may have gone bust, but literature is very much alive. Guests include Roos van Rijswijk [winner Anton Wachter-prize for 'Onheilig'] and Jan Beuving [winner Annie M.G. Schmidt-award and columnist for Studio Voetbal].
