Vogel tells about Martinus, an old man in an abandoned railway station and lives with his grandson looking back on his life. Together they look to what happened in the war exactly happened and what Martinus all those years tucked away.
Thirty-Thijs Prein (actor) and Roelof Pothuis (set designer) learned the old master to know in a other production. That was the plan for the oorlogsverhaal of Preins grandfather to tell on the stage. Thomas Verbogt writes together with Prein the scenario; Peter Vandemeulebroecke signs for the director.
