Open up

The theatre world is opening up and we are happy to offer you one last STET show before the summer break on the 4th of July. With four amazing artists in the open air, it is the perfect programme to close off this theatre season with a bang.

And that’s not all. Behind the scenes, we have been working on a project for Keti Koti, and, of course, plans have been made for next season as well. Read all about it in this newsletter!

Ps: forgot what a real-life STET show looks like? Take a look at these photos of our first post-lockdown programme ‘Het Zwarte Schaap Festival’ in Theater aan het Spui.



STET’s Greenhouse

4 July – Hof van Wouw

Come and close off the season with us at STET’s Greenhouse!

STET’s Greenhouse is a Sunday filled with theatre, dance, music and storytelling in one of the most beautiful places in The Hague. All local, all fresh.

During a walk through the garden, you discover a modern Antigone monologue by Joanna Lucas, a gender bending piece of modern dance by Robin Nimanong and new work by prize winning storyteller Raphael Rodan, closed off by a concert with influences ranging from jazz to Caribean styles and gospel of Mushroom Mosis.

There are still tickets left for three time slots, 11:30, 15:00 and 19:30!

Open air show

Romeo and Juliet | Globe Berlin

11 + 12 September
Raadhuis de Paauw – Wassenaar

STET’s open air show is back! As many of you know, the British group Illyria performs in Wassenaar yearly, as one of our most beloved traditions. Unfortunately, due to Brexit measures, the group is prohibited from visiting our country this summer. Luckily, we have found a theatre company closer to home that turns out to be an evenly perfect match for STET; Globe Berlin!

Globe Berlin’s modern production of Romeo and Juliet is a brilliant play in the folk theater tradition by a versatile ensemble, full of linguistic richness, fast-paced battle scenes and intoxicating music. Make sure to get your early bird tickets!

Early bird tickets (€15,00) go on sale on 5 July, from 10:00 to 23:59!
Sale of regular tickets (€
27,50) starts on 6 July.


Theater voor Keti Koti

‘To whom ever it may concern’ is a breathtaking monologue by actor and storyteller Onias Landveld. The video was especially recorded for Theater voor Keti Koti, an initiative by Dutch theatres to commemorate the abolition of slavery on July 1. We will release ‘To whom ever it may concern’ on 1 July on our website, Youtube and social media channels. Read more about the piece here!
