'With its Pebble, de Toneelmakerij presents an enchanting, light-footed performance for everyone 5 and older about the drama surrounding young refugees.' (de Volkskrant ****)
'Tjebbo Gerritsma and Klavertje Patijn play a marvellous and powerful young pair. Each relies completely on the other and they keep each other going with games.' (de Volkskrant ****)
Little Sister: Summer, autumn, winter, spring, summer, autumn, winter, spring, summer, autumn...
Big Brother: Stop! So what?
Little Sister: Winter!
Big Brother: Again?
Little Sister: Can't help it.
Big Brother: Terrible weather. Never stops either.
Little Sister: Maybe next time around.
The inheritance it received from Wederzijds and Huis aan de Amstel has given de Toneelmakerij years of experience in the area of acting for and in schools. De Toneelmakerij invited director Domenico Mertens to create a performance in the actors’ room. PEBBLE is a text by the French writer Philippe Dorin. PEBBLE tells the tale of Big and Little, brother and sister. Together they take off calmly to visit the peaceful place Big saw in his dream. A strange and funny fairytale about growing up, adventure and thinking up stories together.
