Verloren Jeugd

Lost Youth tells the true stories of young people who were removed from their homes due to the benefits scandal. Behind transparent walls, the struggle of a brother and two sisters unfolds. Three young people who only have each other when the whole world seems to turn against them. Just like the neighbors, teachers, youth care workers and all other bystanders, you witness the drama that takes place in their lives, but also their mutual dynamics and ability to survive.

Lost Youth is about children who ended up in an impersonal system, who were forced to make adult decisions. But also about the resilience of young people who are trying to deal with the demons of the past in the here and now.

The diptych

Lost Youth is a sequel to the performance Lost Innocence. In this theater diptych we give platform to some of the stories of victims of the benefits scandal. These performances and scripts were created in collaboration with experienced experts and based on conversations and interviews with parents and children.

The script was created based on conversations with experienced experts. Without their openness, vulnerability and eloquence, this text would not have been possible. We have infinite respect for them and are grateful for this special collaboration.
