The Frankfurt Theaterhaus will put on a German stage adaptation of A small chance, called Tote Maus für Papas Leben
The first performance is on February 8. Stage-director Rob Vriens has based himself on his own Dutch stage adaptation of A small chance, which he then translated into German. I went to see the Dutch version at the time and I was thrilled. Throughout Kiek is played by several actresses at the same time. Through this ploy her emotional world gains an extra dimension and her confusion manifests itself even more clearly.
