We are A-Way Productions, a young, energetic and creative group. We consist of enthusiastic students and starters based in Groningen. Although none of us has a professional degree in the field of theatre-making, we carry a lot of experience with performing arts. It makes us motivated to make our productions the best we can. Our community contains both Dutch and international people.
With our previous three productions, we tried to achieve an awareness in society around certain themes and taboos. Our first production, “Bang, Bang, You’re Dead” approached school-shootings. Furthermore, it discussed issues such as bullying and the pressure on teenagers to fit in.
In our second performance, called “Slaughterhouse-Five” focused on Billy Pilgrim, a former soldier. Billy became “unstuck in time” after his return from the battlefields in 1945. He suffers from PTSD and hallucinations, although he is perceived to be a war-hero.
In June 2018 we performed “Meet me in Montauk” . Based on the 2004 movie “Eternal Sunshine off the Spotless Mind”. MMIM dealt with themes that are familiar to everyone who has ever been in love, had a broken heart or broke a heart. In its core, the production is about real human connection and the happiness and pain that inevitably come with it.
Our next project, which we will perform in May and June 2019, wil again create certain social awareness and emphasize the importance of memories, even if they are painful.
