Stefan de Walle, Eva van der Gucht e.a.
What do you do if your partner leaves you for someone else after 26 years of marriage? It is happening to Herman. And despite, or rather because of, all the setbacks, he is turning into a much nicer person than he was during his marriage. Through trial and error, he learns to live his own life. He throws himself into adventures and, to his surprise, comes out unscathed. Herman is a tragicomedy about a late bloomer: moving and hilarious at the same time. The piece tells the coming-of-age story of a man in his mid-fifties, based on the book of the same name by Marc van Bree.
