“Truckstop” is a piece about big and small dreams, about dependencies and attempts at liberation. For her dense panorama, the Dutch author only needs a truck stop in which the lives of the three characters will change drastically within a short space of time.

The 28-year-old truck driver Remco, with whom Kataijne falls in love, breaks into the close mother-daughter relationship. Remco has unattainable plans as a survival mode, Kataijne experiences the power of her own decisions, and the mother experiences the compulsion to let go - a highly explosive mixture!

The mother's truck stop is not only a symbol of the small world in the midst of acceleration, but also a crime scene. The piece, clear and enigmatic at the same time, develops a special attraction and is great theater by actors.
