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.
