National Dutch Theatre Festival

presents the best performances of the season, also for a non Dutch-speaking audience!

During its eleven-day run (1 – 11 September, Amsterdam) the National Dutch Theatre Festival (TF) will be presenting the best theatre shows of the season, handing out numerous awards including those for the best actors in the Netherlands, showcasing the latest successful developments in the performing arts, taking the lead in the debate on the role the theatre plays in our society, and blurring the boundaries between the different stage disciplines. In short: visiting TF is more than just catching a show!

There are several theatre shows at the festival that are ‘language no problem’, these shows do not involve any Dutch language or they are English spoken. So English speaking audiences do not have to miss out here! First of all, the festival presents the Official Jury Selection of 2016; eleven best performances of this moment, according to the Jury. De Man in Europe is one of those and will be suitable for an English audience. The National Dutch Theatre Festival also shows TF Specials. These shows just cannot be missed on this festival full of highlights, for example because they were nominated for a price or illustrate recent developments in the world of theatre. There are 4 ‘language no problem’ shows among the TF Specials: Bedtime Stories, ONE., Forever Young and Schwalbe plays a time.
