Alone in a room for the first time in years, a couple is brought back together again after a harrowing breakup. As the play progresses, old wounds re-open, new truths surface, and the real reason behind their separation is learned. Delicate yet hard-hitting, POISON holds up a (hopeful) mirror to humanity where love and humour can still be found in the midst of so much pain.
POISON is widely considered as one of the most internationally successful plays coming from the Netherlands. It won the Taalunie Toneelschrijfprijs Award in 2010 for best new Dutch play and has since been produced across Europe & beyond on stage and on screen. The original production was directed by Johan Simons for NTGent and Dutch actress Elsie de Brauw was awarded the Theo dOr 2011 for best actress in a leading role.
