DOUBLE BILL: My Bitter Half & Gosforth's Fete

By Tom De Beckker, Joannes Truyens, Dané Van Vyve / Alan Ayckbourn - Directed by Tom De Beckker / Jill Franks


Due to unforeseen circumstances, the performances of My Bitter Half are cancelled on Sunday May 7th and Saturday May 13th. GOSFORTH'S FETE however will go ahead as planned on both these dates. On May 7th, you will therefore be able to reserve your ticket at half price, by sending an e-mail to tickets@batsantwerp.be.

On May 13th we have provided some other form of entertainment for you, brought to you by The Bookends, a narrative improv duo made up of Bart Van Loon and Kelly Agathos. Their show takes its inspiration from the books you're reading.

We hope to see you at one of our shows!

My Bitter Half

My Bitter Halfby Tom De Beckker, Joannes Truyens and Danaé Van Vyve, and performed at BATS five years ago, now adapted for FEATS 2017 by Tom De Beckker.

Meet Sophie and Michael, a couple with marriage difficulties. And William, their counsellor, who jumps in front of them to see what kind of car is going to hit them. Michael has a rather Shakespearean way of looking at things, Sophie leans more towards The Bold and the Beautiful.

Will they solve their problems? Come and find out!
Performed by Saskia Van Nuffelen & Tom De Beckker, coached by Jill Franks.
