Teatro Marie de Jongh


Laida and Martin, a happy couple awaiting the birth of their baby, imagine what life will be like once their daughter arrives. But grumpy Tomas, Laida’s father, isn’t excited at all – in fact, he’s usually cranky and complaining. When it turns out the baby won’t be arriving after all, can Tomas help the devastated Laida and Martin to be happy again? This performance is part of Kids Euro Festival: a celebration of European arts and culture for children, featuring artists from the 28 Member States of the European Union.
