Bedtime Stories is a story about a family being torn apart and about their struggle with losses and loneliness. It’s about three people trying to cope with this in their very own way. But most of all it’s about Abby, the family’s child. One day she’s a princess on a flying carpet, traveling amongst the clouds, the next day she has to deal with a terrible loss and with finding her own place in the world, at an age way too young. She tries to seek comfort in the company of a close friend. But will this be enough to heal the scars of the past?

Bedtime Stories is an original play by Nijmegen’s international theater group WOW-EFFECT. The play was developed by the whole group by doing theme-based improvisations. The script was then written by Tanya de Kruijff and the play is directed by Ruud Mol. It stars WOW-EFFECT’s multinational cast from nine different countries and is performed in English.
