Full of gentle humour, a moving play by Gera Thijs, one of the most popular contemporary authors in the Netherlands. Two strangers meet by chance on a mountain trail. Both are at a crossroads in life. He, once a promising comedian, now works in a recreational park disguised as a teddy bear, she, a serious former local beauty, is now waiting for important research results. Can the kiss of the title bring them together forever?

  • „A touching drama of loneliness between two people. Magdalena Myszkiewicz creates a full-blooded role of a woman torn by her experiences when she is diagnosed with cancer. Konrad Pawicki, who has to play an underestimated man of the stage, makes his role a tribute to acting”.
    – Gazeta Wyborcza
  • „The sixth production of this play in the world and the best so far”.
    – Ger Thijs – author of the play
