Hamsterdam

von Nicole Kanter

Hamsterdam

3 f – 3 m; age 6 +; awaiting first production

The water level is rising at a dangerous rate in the valley that’s home to Fridoline the mole and his beaver girlfriend, Bober. Something has got to be done – and fast! While Bober might be an expert dam builder, she has some serious mental issues to deal with at the moment. The situation is made even worse by the machinations of the mole politician Anita, who plans to use the approaching catastrophe to get rich quick and has, to this end, switched careers and is now planning to offer courses in dam building using some dubious cave technology. Fridoline only finds new hope when his old friend Tunk the polar bear turns up. Tunk was once the child star of the local zoo, but public interest in him waned as he grew older and bigger. Deeply disappointed, he went to live at the North Pole. Now that the polar ice caps are melting, he is seeking asylum in his old home, but Anita has categorically refused him a work permit. And the water continues to rise …

Nicole Kanter is not concerned with evoking climate change as a sign of impending apocalypse. Rather, she shows that with ingenuity and solidarity we can continue to live even when conditions change. She has succeeded in creating a humorous, warm-hearted and fast-paced play that gives children an understanding of a very topical issue without scaring them.
