Deinze has been many drama groups with o.a. The Forward as a very strong company, so there is more than enough local theatertalent present.
The direction is in the hands of Deinzenaar and professional actor Hans Van Cauwenberghe. The text is taken in hand by Hans and Jo, and pieces that are now old-fashioned happen to have been taken out. What remains is still a well-written, timely piece.
