"A solid, confident, yet exciting production. With a firm hand, Van der Sluijs renders certain details explicit and manages excellently to maintain a balance between clarity and mystery."
Het Parool
"Van der Sluijs is clearly a director to watch out for. His choices allow the mystery and melancholy of Fosse’s work to shine through."
A Younger Theatre

A businessman meets a dishevelled young woman in a park, in an encounter that will alter their lives for ever. Winter is an atmospheric meditation on relationships, in which Jon Fosse’s poetic and enigmatic language paints a picture of two people trying, in their own ways, to make a difference to each other’s lives.

This UK premiere of Fosse’s play was directed as part of a trainee directorship at the Orange Tree Theatre, and subsequently toured to the Netherlands.
