company: Het Monument
premiere: CCV-theater, Maastricht 1988

The children's play 'de tweedehands knecht' was conceived by J. ten Cate. It was based on the tradition of the Italian 'comedia del arte'. It could be played anywhere. I designed a background-screen which also could be used anywhere, made of rough texture. This comedy made use of several double roles, where the totally different way of acting and the ability of quick costume changes left the audience in confusion of who is who.
