In the preface of Beven, the "anti-terror play" by German playwright Maria Milisavljevic, it is described that the play should be enacted by "Us. Whoever we are and how many of us there may be." In the different interpretations of the play, the cast varies between 4 and a lot of players. When Sara Vertongen performed an excerpt of the text on her own at the Shakespeare is dead festival two years ago, she hushed the author and audience present. This time, you too can discover why. Strong text. Strong performer.
