The Almighty Sometimes Theater Oostpool / Daria Bukvić

It is the story of a young woman fighting for her autonomy and questioning which part of her is truly her own and which part is caused by her medications. A performance about unconditional mother-daughter love, but also about how difficult it is to live with a child with depression - and the feeling of never being able to get it right.


Emotional journey to adulthood

The newly adult Anna (Selin Akkulak) has been dealing with psychological problems since she was eight. For most of her life she has had a 'label' for which she has been in therapy and takes heavy medication. Anna wants to write, but her fantastic stories are seen not only as expressions of her creativity, but also as evidence of her psychological condition. At the same time, she is still an adolescent who can be tough and ruthless for her loved ones. Now that Anna is of age, she wants to take the opportunity to become more independent from her mother (Maartje Remmers) and psychiatrist (Renée Soutendijk). The two women have always protected Anna and now realize they have to let her go. Against the advice of those around her, Anna stops taking her medication; an action that has enormous consequences for her and everyone she loves.
