Hendrik Groen is back!

Holland's most loved senior citizen comes to the theatre for the last time

For anyone who is curious about how Hendrik Groen fared after the closure of the nursing home in Amsterdam North, there is good news: he is coming back to the theatre! In 'Opgewekt naar de eindstreep', the Netherlands' most beloved senior citizen has to face the fact that time is no longer so kind to him: he becomes increasingly forgetful and starts to lose track of things. This leads to confusing situations. By keeping a diary again, the demented Hendrik and his faithful friends Leonie (88) and Frida (10) try to keep a grip on life.

This makes for a touching comedy with funny and poignant moments. As in previous 'Hendrik Groen' performances, the cast consists of young actors - with Beau Schneider in the lead. Hendrik Groen's diaries, which were awarded the NS Publieksprijs, have sold more than half a million copies. A TV series was made of it and the theatre version drew crowds. This is the third and last part.
